Yunnan Craft - 佛

.

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.

More info

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.

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.

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:-)

Outstandingly good

Can’t beat the previous review, and agree with every word in it.
The smell of dry leaves is flowery-fragrant, and the taste is rich and juicy, rounded with hint of sun-dried apricots and turning into lingering sweetness on the back of throat.
Can be a real gem when aged for 12-15 years =)

    Fruity blend

    Nice pleasant smell of dry leaves in the hot gaiwan. Than after wake up, the color of the wet leaves shows better the blend (purple- brownish- and green leaves mixed).
    The broth is gold-yellow, with gold-dust particles.
    Wet leaves smell: light fruity, and meadow flowers, pleasant.
    Taste: light fruity sourness, which astringency gives a vibrating front mouthfeel. Bitterness as well pleasant and brings immediate aftertaste. The broth medium thick in content, good salvia producing aftertaste.
    Effect: has a good uplifting energy, brings a good mood.
    In body: has a warming effect and the feeling of warmth goes from heart to the hands. Stimulates digestion well.
    Can stand for decent 10 steeps. An interesting and complex blend.

    I can recommend for fresh sheng per fans, who likes the slight fruity sourness and vibrating mouthfeel.
