From Canton Tea Co

An exclusive 357g puerh cake direct from the brilliant young tea master Zhong Xin. Alice and Jennifer visited Zhong Xin last year on their visit to Yunnan. In his early twenties he travelled into the mountains and dedicated years to learning how to make tea. Now he is something of a legend with a number of apprentices in the art of tea making throughout Yunnan and Burma and has a strong following of tea farmers and buyers.

Zhong Xin chooses the tea leaves for his puerh maocha (the raw leaf material before it is fully processed and compressed) from different mountains in Yunnan. These leaves are picked by the minority people who own these ancient and wild trees. It has a lingering hui gan (aftertaste), lasting in the throat and on the tongue for 30 mins after drinking. The tea has a strong cha qui and good astringency, indicating a good cake for aging; given a few years ageing the tea should be very mellow and sweet. Can be brewed 10-15 times gong fu style.
