Feng Qing tea factory (now owned by Dianhong Group) is the oldest tea factory in Lincang and the original producer and exporter of Yunnan Black tea. Feng Qing county (Lincang prefecture) is also a producer of high quality pu-erh tea, many from old tea trees.
"Jia Ji Er Deng" means Special Grade #2 and was developed by the Feng Qing tea factory in the 90's. It's a grade similar to Xiaguan's Jia Ji grade, or Menghai's 7542 recipe with an average of grade leaves.
This 2003 production was stored in Dongguan City (Guangdong) for the last 12 years. The storage is what is often called "Guangdong dry storage", which is wetter storage than Kunming (dry) storage but is drier (and cleaner) than many other Guangdong, HK and Taiwan storage conditions.
Aroma is strong and pungent. Very infusable and stable brewing. Nice aged feel without and musty wet storage taste. Perfect balance in the mouth.
