From Yunnan Sourcing

Wu Jia Zhai is small village in Yong De county of Lincang. Wu Jia Zhai is neighbor to Min Feng mountain and not far from Mang Fei and Zhu Peng Zhai. The tea trees from which this production was produced grow at 1900 meters and are between 80-100 years old.

As with teas from this area there is nice balance of bitterness and astringency, but I find this tea much smoother and closer in character to “gu shu”. The tea leaves themselves are dark olive green in color and quite stout. The size of the leaves are not huge but relatively large for first flush of spring Lincang high altitude tea.

One of the highest quality Yong De teas I’ve ever offered and sure to pique the interest of those who appreciate fine raw pu-erh.

I just wanted to write this short review as an update on how some teas are responding to the pumidor. I first got this sample and the flavor intrigued me. It had a tobacco base but mainly tasted like spices and peppers. The best way to explain it is that it tasted like spilling every spice in your cupboard in some mole. I bought a couple cakes and when I tasted it, it still had the spicy flavor. According to my inventory app it says I bought the teas on February 7, 2013. Despite only having it for a month and a half a lot of change has taken place. The spicy, peppery flavors have mellowed out some and started turning into the underlying tobacco flavor. I don’t know if it’s because of being in the presence of other teas that aren’t “spicy” or just from sitting in the pumidor environment but it will be interesting to see how the other teas respond
