Tried a sample, very good pu-erh, wanted to buy a cake, but the cake is out of stock now :) Balanced flavor, sweet and earthy.
This tea is from Jingmai Da Zhai, grown on the Da Ping Zhang area, and is considered some of the finest Jingmai tea available. Another famous tea village is Mangjing. The Mangjing tea taste more simple and bitter, therefore be sold at a lower price.
Jingmai mountain is famous for middle/little leaf tea (中小叶种茶) which is popular for its sweet taste and floral aroma. Jingmai Da Zhai is one of the most famous village and has the biggest ancient tea tree garden in Jingmai mountain, especially Da Ping Zhang area.
Our Jingmai 2012 was picked on 26th and 27th March ( first harvest) from two families. The tea garden is natural and free from pollution. We personally selected all the material and stay with the farmers all the time. The farmers only picked from the hundreds of years old and “no dwarfing” trees that we chose. Lancang county tea industry development office started making numbers for the ancient tea trees. The first family own more tall trees with unique number. The second family pay more attention to pick tender tea leaves.
We bought fresh leaves and ask “a master of kill green” to make the maocha all by hand. And also he is a good friend whom we trust. Pure tea leaves of arbor trees , sun-dried, traditional stone pressed in Yiwu town.
Brewed tea is sparkish yellow green, with charming heavy honey and orchid fragrance. This tea is full in body and very comfortable in mouth, the bitterness is very light, huigan is very fast. Sweet and rich. This tea can brewed more than 20 times.
