Harvested in the First Flush of the spring of 2017, this Sheng Puerh Mao Cha (loose leaf Puerh) is from Ku Zhu Shan, Jinggu. Ku Zhu Shan may not be as famous as other Puerh-producing mountains, but it is indeed favored by many tea lovers. This tea has a strong fragrance and Cha Qi, and can suggest a combination of Jing Mai and Bu Lang.
Our Ku Zhu Shan Puerh's tea leaves are picked from trees aged around 100-years-old. The dry tea has a strong plum/apricot smell. The tea liquor is in a bright gold color. The flavor is fresh and smooth, with no grassy taste, and with low bitterness and astringency. The sweetness hits inside of the cheeks during the first couple of steeps. Bitterness and sweetness are combined in the following steeps.
7 grams of dry leaves can be brewed for about 10 steeps for a full flavor in a regular-size gaiwan.
