“Yiwu Zheng Shan” is an aged sheng Puerh from Yiwu Mountains (Xishuangbanna County) from Yiwu Mengsong Chaye Zhanqiexian Gongsi Factory, 2009 harvest.
345-grams teacake of medium density easily separates into twisted brown leaves, buds and thin cuttings. The aroma is restrained, woody-and-fruity. The infusion is transparent, with a chestnut shade.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature, woody-and-fruity with balsamic, autumnal, herbaceous, mushroom and nutty notes. The aroma is deep and warm, fruity-balsamic. The taste is dense, smooth and juicy-tart, sweetish, with fruity sourness, spicy nuances and a refreshing finish.
Steep the tea in a hot water (90-95°C) in a gaiwan or in a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 5-6 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 10 seconds. After that do short steeps (for 1-2 seconds) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 10 times.
“Yiwu Zheng Shan” is an excellent example of aged sheng puer with a rich flavor and meditative impact.
