From Yunnan Sourcing

Wild Grown tea leaves from Gao Jia Mountain. This is the original An Hua tea varietal thats has grown in the mountains of Gao Jia Shan and Yun Tai Shan for centuries (maybe longer). Gao Jia Shan is both a place and the name of the tea factory brand that produced this lovely tea. Gao Jia Shan as a producer doesn’t have as long of a history as Yi Yang and Bai Sha Xi tea factories but nonetheless produces very high quality Fu Brick tea processed in the traditional manner.

“Cha Duo Tang” is a blend of leaves that come from both light wet piling and medium wet piling (shorter length of the time and longer length of time wet piling) which were then blended and pressed into a brick.

The taste is ultra smooth with a malty sweetness. It has a ultra thick tea soup and voluminous body that fills and stimulates the mouth and throat. Although there are quite alot of coarse leaves and stems this is a wonderful tasting tea made from wild harvested tea leaves, and processed laboriously to achieve “Fu Cha Perfection”!

One of my favourite teas. Appearance-wise, it’s very twiggy, with a whole lot of ‘golden flowers.’ The taste and aroma are pretty strong, honey-like and mildly sweet. Later steeps brought out tart and fruity flavours, including an almost kiwi-like taste. It’s very well-priced for such a complex and enjoyable tea!

Cha Duo Tang is an easy to drink, comforting tea with complex aromas and a nutty taste profile. However, the best aspect of it is its mouthfeel. The liquor is very thick and bubbly, with a slick, oily texture. This might very well be the best tea in the 0.5$/g category that I’ve ever had. It is not funky, so I would recommend it to everyone really, even those new to the world of fermented tea.

Dry leaves have a faint scent of peanuts, cooked pasta, and light wood smoke. After the rinse, I get a medicinal aroma with notes of herbs, cumin, kumquat, cedar, palm, dried lime, forest floor, and swamp flora (marigold).

The taste is vegetal and herbaceous with a touch of bitterness and a sweet finish. There are flavours like yellow peas, roasted hazelnuts, and wood. Aftertaste is then quite sweet, earthy, and warming with a sort of metallic character and notes of licorice, bay leaf and garlic.
