From Douji

2009 Douji Hong DaDou Raw 357g
Yunnan Yiwu Zheng Shan Mountain Tea Co., LTD
The Douji DaDou Green Cake is made by using a blend of early Spring premium materials from the Menghai and Lincang areas. Douji has been a rising star in the high quality Pu-erh tea arena. Using the best of arbor materials and processed strictly by the traditional method, it won the heart and soul of many tea collectors. Douji products have recently won both ‘Best Quality’ and ‘Most Collectible Value’ awards.

The Yiwu Zheng Shan Mountain Company is located in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan and becoming quite famous due to their high grade “Douji” pu-erh. They are relatively new to the pu-erh world. Ms. He Bei Xia, the chairperson of the Yiwu Zheng Shan Mountain Company is adamant in producing only the best pu-erh possible. She places great emphasis on quality control and insures that only the best mao cha from Yunnan will be compressed into pu-erh. This is no easy endeavor and in order to maintain such stringent standards she guarantees that the company will produce no more than 100 tons of tea a year. In contrast, the XiaGuan Factory produces roughly 7000 tons of puerh each year.

The Douji DaDou produced in 2009 is a blend of very fine Menghai and Lincang leaf. The characteristics of the two areas blend wonderfully to produce a fantastic cup! The cake is composed of beautiful whole leaves throughout (i.e., not just on top) which are quite large. The tea liquor is a nice orange-yellow color – even after two rinses it was a tiny bit cloudy during the first 2-3 infusions. The scent is pleasant – fresh, fruity, sweet. The sip is quite smooth and mellow with a definite sweetness and there is a little boldness and strength (a thickness?) to balance the sip. Nice chaqi settles in after 10-12 swallows. Definitely a bit of appealing complexity in this one — a good quality offering and I am a fan for sure!

The Douji brand is considered a premium puerh – particularly their single-mountain cakes. Unfortunately these cakes have become extremely pricey in recent years. I have learned from a few individuals more knowledgeable about puerh than I that the best value in Douji products may now be their blends which also use high quality tea leaves. Of course these too have risen dramatically in price recently. However, if you keep searching you just might stumble upon a cake here or there in a tea seller’s inventory with a little age on it and an “older” price which makes it a bargain compared to the more recent Doujis. I’ve stumbled upon a few lately and I am very happy to have added them to my puerh collection.
