From Chawangshop

“Jin Gua Gong Cha” also called “Tuan Cha”, is a special kind of compressed puer tea. It looks like pumpkin and the tea will turn to golden yellow after a period of time, so the tea was named “Jin Gua” (Golden Melon). “Gong Cha” means early Jing Gua used to be tribute for royalty.

The tea had been stored in Simao until they were sold to Kunming in 2006. There have been great changes in tea in the past twenty years. The liquor color is like red autumnal leaves (of the maple, etc.), rounded and show the typical characteristics of mature puer tea, tastes wonderfully smooth and cool with strong herbal scent, drinks well now.

1990s “Jin Gua Gong Cha” Chawangshop

Summary: Airing out this tea for a week has massively improved it. It gives a good aged taste which hints at 2000 Green Peacock by Essence of Tea. However, the furniture polish note is still too bright to fully enjoy this tea.

5g 100 ml gaiwan. The sample has been open and airing out for approximately one week.

10s – Not unpleasant like the last time I tried this tea. Still smoky. Has a nice aged taste. Still on the bright furniture polish, but only slightly.

15s – Med orange/golden. Open aged flavours. Some kipper smoke. This is much improved after airing out. It leaves a pine smoky taste.

20s – It has flavours in common with 2000 Green Peacock by Essence of Tea: log burning smoke, bright pine smoke – all softened of course. However, currently it is not as good as that tea. It leaves a bright furniture note in the mouth, and it’s currently not too pleasant. In time I’m hoping this will be less bright and more round.
