Sweet fruity notes from the 2017 Pa Sha Lao Zhai - Gu Hua , along with slight herbal and plummy sweetness of aged Zi Juan ( purple variety tea leaf from Puer area ) makes the taste of this tea quite bit far rom conventional semi-aged shengs. Very soft and balanced tea liquor achieved by blending Mao Cha from 3 different villages based on their specific taste profile characteristics.

Astringent body , which is typical for the Pa Sha area , is slowly diminishing out with the years of storage. Our hunt for the autumn mao cha is documented in our blog.
This 200g sheng pu-erh tea cake is wrapped into the handmade paper with good breathability in order to provide better maturing conditions during the storage.
The face of Buddha comes from Ayutthaya historical park in Thailand we were traveling long time ago .
Calligraphy - fo - 佛 is written by master Fan De Hui , some of his work we offer here
At the back of the wrapper except our name you can notice written text in Dai language. This is actually part of the prayers taken out from the monk's manuscript.
I have taken these pictures many years ago in a town near Myanmar borders , where behind the temple an old monk was teaching local women some of the prayers.
In old Dai tradition women weren't allowed to read ( to learn how to read ) so monk is teaching them prayers verbally and women writing that down phonetically in Chinese Han Zi ( mandarin Chinese characters ). It happens that such a " phonetic translation" of Dai language to the Chinese characters creates some funny expressions so they were quite laughing a lot:-)
