From Yunnan Sourcing

2011 Yunnan Sourcing "San He Zhai" Raw 400g
San He Zhai (Three Harmonized Villages) tea cake is a blend of tea from three villages and also from three different harvest times (Autumn 2010, Spring 2011, and Autumn 2011). San He Zhai is a powerful tea that is intended for longer term aging. It has bitterness and astringency, but this is balanced by a textured, filling and lubricating mouth-feeling that stays with the drinker well after the tea session has ended. The aroma is strong and pungent and on a warm day will fill the room with it’s nectar-like aroma. Being from old arbor and wild arbor tea trees the leaves are thick and stout and hold up well to multiple infusions. Stone pressed in the traditional manner , dried with low temperature drying process, individually wrapped in Dai minority hand-crafted paper and then meticulously packed into bamboo leaf tongs for collection and long-term storage. San He Zhai is a powerful blended tea cake composed of high quality material but priced affordably

I have to say that this tea is excellent for its price. I’ve been liking Spring/Autumn blends lately, this one particularly seems to capture some of the best of both, with the strength and energy of a Spring tea and the mellow mouth-filling sweetness of an Autumn. I’d say that it has notes of tobacco, grains, and dry fruit. Also it seems to be aging well, with its lower wood/smoke flavors becoming more pronounced each time I drink it. With plenty of complexity and staying power, and at $41 for a fat 400g cake, there’s not really anything to complain about here…

edit: This tea continues to develop smokier, earthier, and more textured nuances. It almost reminds me of a glass of Laphroaig Scotch- smokey, peaty, and sweet. Scott seems to have selected this material for aging very wisely…

Flavors: Peat Moss, Smoke, Stewed Fruits, Tobacco
