Zhang Jia Wan 2018 - 张家湾
An Yi Wu tea from old trees which combines a flowery beginning with a bitter sweet fruity brew.
Zhang Jia Wan is a village in the Yiwu mountains close to the border to Laos. This tea is made of ancient tree material (gu shu, 古树). This is an exciting tea! While it has the fruity characteristics of other Yiwu teas, it can show a bit bolder side after a few steeps. It starts off mildly and flowery and turns into a bitter sweet fruity brew.
After a few years of natural storage in Jinghong, in the southern part of Yunnan, it has hardly any astringency and produces a light, yet long lasting aftertaste.

For all our Puerh teas we recommend Gong Fu style brewing using 5-8g of tea on 100ml water. Rinse the tea briefly and then do repeating steeps (up to 6-12) of 10-20 seconds.
