The long river of history is gurgling, and Gongfu tea is a leaf rafting in the long river, drifting slowly from ancient times. All kinds of things in the world and the warmth and coldness of human feelings are constantly changing on both sides of the strait. The only thing that remains the same is the original heart of tea, which warms the world. When it comes to old tea, tea lovers are basically old white tea and old black tea. As for the old Dancong, there are very few. Firstly, there are few Dancong teas that have the habit of storing tea, and secondly, it is very difficult to find those that can be stored until now. Today Tongxinshe Teahouse shares a Phoenix Dancong old tea "Ya Shi Xiang in 2005"
Many people think that old tea is tea that has been stored for a long time, and that it is good tea if it has been stored for a long time. This understanding is not correct. First of all, not all tea can become old tea, only good tea with rich inner quality can be transformed into old tea with full flavor. The value of old tea lies in the transformation of its rich endoplasm over the years, giving us the sublimation of body and mind. Secondly, the storage of old tea should be clean, and old tea that is moldy, deteriorated, or smelly will lose its efficacy and value. Generally speaking, the definition of old tea is: high-quality tea, which has been moderately processed and aged in a reasonable environment for many years. In the precipitation of time, it has been mellowed to produce a better taste, and it is a pleasant tea after tasting.
This 2005 old tea Ya Shi Xiang was specially made by Tongxinshe Teahouse to Xie Jie’s house in Fenghuang Mountain. Usually, Fenghuang Dancong will be sold when the new tea comes out that year. In a few cases, tea farmers will keep some for their own use. Therefore, Fenghuang single-cong aged tea is relatively rare in the market. It was made in 2005 and has been stored in the warehouse. Ya Shi Xiang, this classic fragrance type, I believe everyone is familiar with it without too much introduction. Its original scientific name is "Yinhuaxiang", which has an elegant and long-lasting aroma, and is loved by old and new tea lovers.
After 18 years of transformation, this Ya Shi Xiang is naturally different from the new tea. The aroma is calm and strong, and the tea soup adds charm. In Chaoshan folks, there is a saying that "one-year tea, three-year medicine, and seven-year treasure" for tea storage. It is believed that the older the Phoenix Dancong, the higher the medicinal value. The research on the health effects of Fenghuang Dancong at the same time for 20 years and 20 years confirmed that with the prolongation of the storage years of Fenghuang Dancong, the aged Fenghuang Dancong has anti-inflammation, anti-virus, lowering blood sugar, lowering uric acid and repairing alcoholic liver damage. In terms of effect, it has better efficacy than the new Fenghuang Dancong,
