2014 Bao He Xiang "Jian Ru Jia Jing" Yi Wu Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
"Jian Ru Jia Jing" is a blend of spring 2014 tea from Yi Wu area of Xishuangbanna. Li Wen Hua has painstakingly blended this tea to achieve a strong and full bodied tea that will be enjoyed now and in the future.
Jian Ru Jia Jing (渐入佳境) means something like "Slowing Entering the Perfect Place". Li Wen Hua named this tea as such to show that the character of the tea shows itself fully after several steeps and that the mouth feeling is not just from one cup, but is the cups that came before it too.
Sweet and fruity with a nice lightly aged feel to it! Stored in Guangdong by Li Wen Hua, we purchase only one tong a time, so the tea will keep it's Guangdong stored character.
Li Wen Hua is a long time Pu-erh veteran, he's produced pu-erh for Xinghai Tea Factory (1996-2004) and then later worked for the Menghai Tea Factory as a master tea blender from 2004 to 2008. Several Da Yi brand ripe and raw blends can be credited to Li Wen Hua. In 2011 Li Wen Hua founded the Bao He Xiang 宝和祥 Brand of Pu-erh Tea with a distinct focus on creating high quality blended ripe and raw pu-erhs as well as single mountain blends as well. Bao He Xiang is a relatively small brand with productions ranging from 250 kilograms to 2000 kilograms in total.
