From Yunnan Sourcing

Wild Grown tea leaves from Gao Jia Mountain. This is the original An Hua tea varietal thats has grown in the mountains of Gao Jia Shan and Yun Tai Shan for centuries (maybe longer). Gao Jia Shan is both a place and the name of the tea factory brand that produced this lovely tea. Gao Jia Shan as a producer doesn’t have as long of a history as Yi Yang and Bai Sha Xi tea factories but nonetheless produces very high quality Fu Brick tea processed in the traditional manner.

“Da Cang Jia” (aka Big Collection for the Family) is a blend of leaves that come from both light wet piling and medium wet piling (shorter length of the time and longer length of time wet piling) which were then blended and pressed into a brick. After pressing the golden flowers flourish in the inner section of the brick where the conditions are just right to support them. After a few days the Golden Flowers have thrived and spread throughout the inner part of the bricks, and then the bricks are dried gradually using a temperature of 37C which preserves gradually halts the spread of the flowers without damaging them or the tea leaves.

This is among the most premium Gao Jian Shan productions ever. Limited to just 2000 bricks in total!

The taste is ultra smooth with a malty sweetness. It has a ultra thick tea soup and voluminous body that fills and stimulates the mouth and throat. This is an ultra-premium Fu Cha made from wild harvested tea leaves, and processed laboriously to achieve “Fu Cha Perfection”!

ALLERGEN ALERT!!! * Because there is a possibility the golden flowers were inoculated using wheat flour we cannot guarantee this tea is safe for those with Celiac Disease or those that have severe gluten induced allergies *

I’ve had a difficult time trying to acquire a taste for Fu Zhuan. I have a gallon sized ziplock bag of samples that have gone mostly untouched. Typically I’ll try one steep, make a funny face and dump it out . I just find it weird in a way I can’t relate to. Likewise with old puerh that has golden flowers. Just a peculiar mold with a strange character. Today I decided to give another shot expecting to dump it and reach for an aged sheng. This stuff has lotsa golden flowers. I’m nervous. Wet leaf surprising smells like Amaretto. A good sign. Taste is of marzipan and wet wood. No basement weird character to speak of. Through the steeps, the sweet nutty flavor gives way to tart woody dry almost English old ale notes. I don’t know if I’ve finally acquired a taste for this stuff or if it’s just this particular tea that’s struck a chord with me. Gonna have to try another one tomorrow and see. I have read others notes that say the qi for this style is grounding and balanced. I can see that. As for body feels it’s more of a superficial tingle accompanied by a relaxed head. I was going to go for a bike ride on this cloudy day but after drinking this I’m content to stare out the window…
