NEW & Limited supply!
ORIGIN: Wuyishan, Fujian, China
In August, rock tea production season is in full swing. Many friends ask: when will your family's new rock tea be available this year?
I say: there is no rush! Good tea is not afraid to be late.
The production cycle of rock tea is long, with a process of drying, roasting, re-roasting and resting, and it usually takes more than two months before it is ready to be presented to the tea lovers. The tea has to pass a real test of fire, with many challages in the craftsmanship. Only then the aroma and taste of the tea is pure and it develops the unique aftertaste, or rock rhythm. It is because of this unique flavour that it is highly sought after by senior tea lovers; as the saying goes: 'Although it is good before the rains, it is still too new, and you should not pick a cup to your lips before the tea gets some rest and looses the flavour of fire. It is worth waiting for a good tea and a good tea is worth waiting for. Today Tong Xin She teahouse shares a December 2021 "Sea Silk International cup" second tea king competition "Gold Award Big Red Robe" free sample for a limited time, each order is limited to a single bag of 8.3 grams.
In December 2021, after Gao Peng's participation in the competition, the gold medal tea was sealed and not intended for sale yet. The reason was that with just one round of charcoal baking the tea belonged to the "light fire" category. In order to give this tea enough time to rest naturally, it has been sealed until July 2022 when the second round of charcoal baking took place. After tasting the twice-baked tea: excitement! It was worth the wait. I named this tea: "The Orchid of the Empty Valley".
This Gold Award Da Hong Pao, compared with the ordinary Da Hong Pao, has more aftertaste, tea soup is softer, the taste softer and mellow, leaving a smooth feeling in the throat, full of the desirable 'rock charm'. Coming from a good mountain field, with good processing, good tea will speak for itself. Gold Award Da Hong Pao raised between heaven and earth, growing in the rocky valley among cliffs, streams and springs. Temperature, humidity, wind speed, sunlight and all other factors are combined on this tea. It is Nature's selfless gift, blessed with the geographical advantages of the valleys and mountains of Wuyi. The unique taste of the Gold Award Da Hong Pao is the result of Gao Peng's utmost care. This tea is tightly rolled, greenish-brown in colour, with a solid, slightly twisted shape and a lustrous surface.
Tasting: the tea soup is deep orange-yellow in colour, clear and lustrous. In the mouth, the tea is as sweet and natural as a fine wine. As it passes through the throat it's soft and full, and permeates the whole body. The soothing feeling is self-evident, the throat rhythm is rich and obvious, and the aftertaste is endless. The steeped leaf is soft and bright, the leaf edge is vermilion, the vein of the leaf is light green with yellow. The tea soup is sweet and smooth, full and intense, with the charm of 'rock bones and flowery aroma'.
As you begin to sip the tea, you can feel the floral aroma running through your mouth and nose, and as you have more of this tea, the floral aroma starts to intensify, coming in layers. By the third or fourth infusion, the taste becomes more and more powerful and full, with a thick mouthfeel and a long aftertaste.
