From Zuo Wang Tea

The original Sheng Puerh leaf quality used to make 紅运当头 (Hong Yun Dang Tou) is very high; the leaves come from ~200 year old trees in Mengku, Lincang. The fermentation process was done perfectly, and even 6 months after this tea was pressed into a cake it was very drinkable with minimal off-taste. The tea has an amazingly sweet, earthy flavor. We have found this tea to be pleasantly moving, warming up the stomach and limbs quickly; it is quite relaxing and comfortable to drink.

60% is from Fall of 2016; 40% is from Spring of 2017. Using this amount of Fall material allowed us to use high quality Old Tree leaf material while keeping the cost affordable.

6 grams can brew 10-15 rounds

This is the best Shou Puerh I’ve had in a long time. I’m normally not a huge fan of Shou, but this one really stood out to me. Not only does it last forever, but the flavor is so clean and sweet that it makes you want to drink another pot after you’re done with the first. I only bought the 30g bag but I will be ordering more once I run out for sure.

I brewed 6g in a medium sized Gaiwan. The broth comes out extremely dark the first 2 or 3 steeps. The flavor overall is very earth and sweet, and I get notes of plums, almonds, rice sugar. The Qi of these tea is very relaxing and mellow and I can sleep shortly after drinking it. The tea is very viscous which reflects the tree age.
