2013 Qian Jia ZhaiFloating Leaves Tea
This tea is from a wonderful, lesser known tea area in Yunnan. The scent of dried apricots is prevalent throughout a session with this tea, from dry leaf, wet leaf to brewed tea. It has a oily, melting sensation on the palate, and has sweet aftertaste that lingers deep in the throat.
The energy is strong, but gentle for a young puer. In our experience, this is characteristic of Qian Jia Zhai tea. The tea broth warms the belly, and this feeling stays long after it is drunk. We highly recommend this tea to drink now, and to keep for aging. It is an excellent puer!
