Description:

Jia Ji (甲级) - "A-Grade"

Tea was stored in mountain district of Taiwan.

I was drinking other day a sample from a FengHuang JiaJi 1998 Sheng Tuo. It is a pretty good tea indeed, the more I brew it the more I liked. Thinking that price for this tea in Taobao is almost 200 euro/100 grams stopped me before any plan to acquire it for my shop. I have never believed in a magical transformation of such tuo cha's. Until lately I tried a few good ones, such transformation really reflects a change of a price for these little cheap tea nests that suddenly will cost you 1500 RMB.

Why this long introduction for the Xiaguan 2007 JiaJi? This Xiaguan nest is very nice and still cheap. Where this tea will progress? I have a similar one from the same year, bought in 2009 in Kunming but this one is far better. The magic of transformation?

White Crane Xiaguan Tuo 2007

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

All Peter’s teas from PU-ERH.sk, I had the opportunity to taste, were of high quality, so there was no reason to worry. I bought straight whole tuocha w/o sampling it. It turned out well, of course :)

The nest is loosely pressed on edges. When breaking a piece it disintegrates into individual leaves. The smell of steamed leaves is slightly mellow with strong fruity overtones. Deeper smell is then dominated by fruity fragrance.

Very pleasant fruity taste from the first infusion. It leaves the feeling of astringency on the tongue. There is this little unpleasant bitter and biting "tooth" at the end of first two infusions. This can be avoided by rinsing longer or double short rinsing before first infusion. Then there is nothing disturbing in the taste. A strong astringency at the end shows the considerable potential for further maturation. In the mouth it leaves a fruity taste with astringency.

Pleasant and relaxing energy. Sipping on the patio in 30°C and the tea brings pleasantly relaxed mood.
Somewhere at the sixth infusion fruitiness disappeared and ii is replaced by more mature and mellow taste. Camphor flavor perhaps.

Super aged tea for good price, 200g for €19.50

5g per 80ml - rinse 2x3s - water 90°C - 8s/5/7/9/12/15/18/20/22/25/28 / ... simply a lot of tasty brews

Beware of dosage and temperature. The leaves are chopped and loosely pressed. Tea is then very quick and can be easily over-steeped. The infusion is then too astringent.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Bĭng: The tea cake itself. Tea cakes or other compressed pu'er can be made up of two or more grades of tea, typically with higher grade leaves on the outside of the cake and lower grades or broken leaves in the center. This is done to improve the appearance of the tea cake and improve its sale. Predicting the grade of tea used on the inside takes some effort and experience in selection. However, the area in and around the dimple of the tea cake can sometimes reveal the quality of the inner leaves.“

Quotes

„The important thing of all this tea drinking and learning is not so much the drinking itself, but the critical reflection and evaluation that takes place simultaneously. Forget about what others tell you – what do you feel and think when you’re drinking this tea? How does it compare with what you have tried? How does it challenge what you already think you know?“
