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?

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


„Ripened or aged raw pu-erh has occasionally been mistakenly categorised as a subcategory of black tea due to the dark red colour of its leaves and liquor. However, pu-erh in both its ripened and aged forms has undergone secondary oxidization and fermentation caused both by organisms growing in the tea and free-radical oxidation, thus making it a unique type of tea. This divergence in production style not only makes the flavour and texture of pu-erh tea different but also results in a rather different chemical makeup to resulting brewed liquor.“

Quotes

„Pu'er Tea; 普洱茶. That 'Puer Tea' was given this name suggests that historically this kind of tea - post fermented camelia sinensis assamica must have come from the south and west of Puer for there to have been any sense in transporting it through that city. The majority of good Puer tea still comes from the Xishuangbanna region. Puer County itself was not an historically important tea producing region.“
