  • Gua Feng Zhai 2011 Autumn
    $140.00
    357g
    Gua Feng Zhai 2011 Autumn
    Our favourite puer of the Autumn 2011 season, this tea is aging very nicely, and is a powerful Autumn tea. Gua Feng Zhai is an ethnic Yao village located along China's border with Laos. The tea comes from one of three ancient plantations deep in the forest. It takes the villagers 3 hours walk to reach the tea trees. They pick & process the leaves in the forest, camp overnight, wait for the maocha to dry, then carry it back to the village. Gua Feng Zhai pu'er is highly sought after as it has the most potent chaqi to be found in Yiwu region. This tea has a strong, rich fragrance, with robust leafs & stems typical of the Autumn flush.

  • "Four Peaks" Lao Man E 2011 Summer

    "Four Peaks" Lao Man E 2011 Summer
    This tea was picked from 4 large, ancient tea trees, each from a different part of the mountain range around Lao Man E village, hence the name "Four Peaks" Summer Lao Man E. The 4 trees were selected for their sweet taste, a nice counterpoint to the bitterness of our 2013 Spring or 2014 Spring Lao Man E. This is "LME light" and will challenge your preconceptions about Summer tea. It is especially good when mug or thermos steeped. This tea has been reviewed by Jakub Tomek, Elliot Knapp, and Petr Novak.

    Gao Shan Zhai 2011 Autumn
    Gao Shan Zhai 高山寨 literally means “high mountain village” but at 1100m elevation, it is actually a bit lower than most Puer producing mountains in Yunnan. Gao Shan Zhai is very close to Yiwu town proper, and is famous for its strong fruit & floral fragrance. Watch out for the blissful chaqi and latent huigan. 20minutes after drinking you can still feel the sweetness in the throat, making you crave another cup!

Lang He's lighter fermentation process results in a lighter, sweeter liquor that is free of that fishy wo dui flavour common in heavily fermented shu. The proof is in the pudding.

    Man Zhuan 2012 Spring
    Man Zhuan 蛮砖 is one of the 6 famous tea mountains of ancient times. This cake is made from 100-300 year old tea trees growing at 1,250m elevation. The liquor is an attractive bright honey color, and the thick soup creates a smooth, rounded mouthfeel. The aroma is pleasingly sweet, with that signature floral scent of Yiwu teas. But the flavour is most impressive, full of grass & fresh hay, quite bitter when pushed, but with almost no astringency. This multi dimensional taste suggests it will age well. One of the highlights of this tea is the huigan, which leaves a persistent sweetness in the throat, even after 5 infusions. Read more about Man Zhuan on our blog. This limited production run of 42 cakes was completely hand picked, hand processed & stone pressed in Yiwu.
