2021 Gao Jia Shan "How Awesome!" Hunan Fu Zhuan Tea
This is a new pressing of premium Spring 2020 harvested Fu Tea from Gao Jia Shan to celebrate the year of the Ox! The tea is titled "这么牛" which translates roughly "How Awesome." It's kind of a play on words as the character for Ox 牛 combined with 这么 means: "How Awesome!"
Each brick is meticulously and luxuriously packaged and comes in its own box (suitable for gifting or storage).
This is a thick and juicy Fu tea! Very viscous, very sweet, fruity and malty! A good amount of golden flowers. Order at least 250 grams to make sure you get an inner chunk with golden flowers (the outer sections along the edges don't have the golden flowers), or better yet get the whole brick!
Premium Fu brick!!!
The tea itself is made from Spring 2020 harvested tea leaves from the Gao Jia Mountainous area of Anhua County in Hunan. 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. Gao Jia Shan is a premium medium-small producer of An Hua Hei Cha (including Tian Jian, Fu Cha Zhuan, Hei Cha Zhuan, and Qian Liang Teas.
The tea was fermented with a few days of wet piling, and then pressed into bricks. After pressing the golden flowers flourish in the inner section of the brick where the conditions are just right to support them. After a few days the Golden Flowers have thrived and spread throughout the inner part of the bricks, and then the bricks are dried gradually using a temperature of 37C which preserves and gradually halts the spread of the flowers without damaging them or the tea leaves.
