From JAS eTea

Affection for Douyi Raw Pu-erh Tea 2011 Spring Cake is a tribute to the village of Douyi on Nannuo mountain. Nannuo mountain is located in the eastern part of Menghai County of Yunnan Province’s Xishuangbanna Prefecture. It has an average elevation of 1,400 meters above sea level. The entire mountain is covered in shaded forests of green bamboo and other trees. Ecological conditions are excellent.

This JK Tea Company tea is directly from a tea farmer in Douyi village (it is located in the highest altitude in Nannuo mountain). The uncompressed tea material (máochá) is from tea trees that are over 200 years old (see 3 Key Factors in Máochá That Affect Pu-erh Quality on our blog). The tea leaves are rich in ripe fruit and wild honey aroma. This tea has a very sweet taste especially for a new Pu-erh raw tea with lingering aftertaste sweetness in the mouth.

This is a high-end tea, compressed by the traditional stone method and worthy of long-term storage and placement in your private collection.

Brewing guildline:

Gaiwan: 8 grams per session (180ml gaiwan); the first several infusions should be 92-95°C (190°F) for about 10 seconds; later infusions should be about 15 seconds. Note: Pour the water around the edge of the gaiwan to avoid burning the tender tea buds; don’t pour the hot water on the tea leaves directly. Do not use any strainer/filter to filter this tea, as it is clean enough. Also, use of a strainer will greatly influence the denseness of the tea liquid.

I got a 15g sample and split it into two sessions. The first session I was very impressed. This note is about my second session. First steeping I shared a cup with my mom. She noted some mild bitter aftertaste. She also said “whoo, this tea is making me dizzy, I probably shouldn’t have anymore”. I didn’t want to tell her she was getting tea drunk off one cup. She is really sensitive though but I was feeling it too after the first steeping. This tea is way too strong on an empty stomach! An omelet and a pear later and I delved into the next couple steepings…

Golden color and floral scent, taste of melon and honey with an initial sweetness and mild bitter aftertaste. Very sweet for a young sheng and the melon taste was quite pleasant. The liquor has a little viscosity to it which I liked, went down very smooth and coated the mouth and throat. The cha qi character was much more enjoyable with some food in the belly. A little buzzy and out there, I would describe it. Kinda fun, but it was a little nauseating on an empty stomach.

Currently checking in around $80 this one is a little spendy, but an excellent candidate for long term storage. It will be a gem in its later years!
