From Chawangshop

Bai Liang Cha (also named Hua Juan Tea) is a special compressed Heicha from Anhua County, Hunan province. Hua Juan Tea has various sizes: Qian Liang Cha (36.25kg per strip), Bai Liang Cha(3.625kg per strip), Shi Liu Liang Cha(0.5kg per strip), Shi Liang Cha(0.3625kg per strip).

In 1820, Shaanxi businessmen invented the cylindrical pressed tea – Bai Liang Cha. 1862-1874, on the base of it, Sanhegong Teahouse, runs by Shanxi businessmen, created Anhua Qian Liang Cha, which processing techniques have become “national intangible cultural heritage”. To make high quality Hua Juan Tea it needs high quality material, great skills and the special technology. All the processing are completed by hand under the natural conditions . Under the natural catalysis, it will ferment and dry slowly by itself, then the tea is stored. The more aged, the better taste.The complex technique process and intoxicating taste make Hua Juan Tea become the king of Heicha. The tea is packaged to cylinder shape with palm and bamboo-woven baskets. This tea was stored in Hunan and later in Guangdong heicha tea seller warehouse.

Dark yellow tea soup, full and sweet herbal flavor in mouth with light floral and nice aftertaste. This tea can be brewed for many infusions in gaiwan or cook for a long time without astrigency or bitter. It is wonderful to enjoy now but will improve with age.

Original is 3.625kg. We offer 200g slices packed in handmade paper.

Amazing coloured cake, very green yellow, 200g sliced from a larger piece.

Dark yellow tea soup, with a pleasant old/musty aroma, but also this can be bit bready/cakey. I like it, its nice. Has a bit of zing on the tongue which is pleasant, although not super long lasting huigan or anything.

There is sweetness & a bit of a bready taste, its a bit like cake water, with a slight sweet raisin viscous body. This is also a bit of an old-book-taste, depending on how you look at it.

A slight bit of citrus, maayyyybe? anyway, at the 4th steep & there is still a mini-zing in the mouth & sweetness. its slightly herbal, perhaps a bit of floral.

i’m still pretty new to these types of heicha so i’m gongfu brewing – I think this one can take a bit more punishment than i’m currently giving it, so I’m going to have to keep practising with getting the right parameters for fullest flavour. Certainly there wasnt anything offputting at all with this one, but i’m going to come back after a while with a score as currently i’m still seeing what works best
