2014 Cha Yu Lin "Quan Ye Wu Gen" Fu Zhuan Tea
Cha Yu lin is a small An Hua area tea producer that produces their own Fu Cha, Tian Jian and Qian Liang (and Bai Liang) Cha. They have been producing teas under this brand since 2005. Their attention to care and detail in their productions is admirable and we are proud to be able to offer this incredibly delightful Wu Long Mountain Fu Brick!
This 1000 gram tea brick is composed entirely of spring harvest material Gao Jia Mountain (高家山) in An Hua county area mountainous tea gardens. This tea is referred to as "Quan Ye Wu Gen" (全叶无根), which means "Just Leaves without Stems". At the time of picking, only the leaves and buds were picked withour the stem. This style of picking is rare in Fu Cha production and results in a very sweet, strong and complex tea! There may be a few stems present in the brick but as a ratio is much much less than a normal fu brick.
The tea was fermented, then pressed into bricks where 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 the bricks are dried gradually using a temperature of 37C which gradually halts the spread of the flowers without damaging them or the tea leaves.
High quality tea leaves, expert processing, and several years of aging come together to make this a very enjoyable Fu Brick!
