This is our first ever Spring Harvest Zheng Qi Tang village production and were excited to offer this unique and flavorful tea! Burly wild arbor tea leaves picked during the first flush of spring were processed entirely by hand from start to finish (wok kill-green, bamboo mat rolling, sun-drying, and stone-pressing).

Net Weight: 357 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)
Harvest time: April 2020
Harvest Area: Zheng Qi Tang Village, Mengku County, Lincang Prefecture
Total Production amount: 50 kilograms

12/5/2020 First trial of 25 gram sample. 5am.
7.5 grams in Hawaii pot.
S2 – tasty. there is something special in the flavor here.
S4 – noticed again how pleasant the flavor is as I finished a cooled bowl.


Curious to know your thoughts on it :)
I almost added a sample of this one in my latest YS order.


Whoops, I forgot to save the session. See update, though I plan to give this a few more session notes in future trials.
I’m curious if you can recommend a best practice for multiple tasting session notes. Is it best to create new reviews each time, or go back and comment on the original or edit the original (to keep a single, growing log in one review)? I’m torn on how to manage multiples, especially since I don’t always capture full-rounded thoughts at each sitting. I hope that makes sense!


I don’t believe there is a best practice. Personally, the notes I write for new teas are usually spread over two sessions. In the first one, I focus on the specifics and just write down some pointers. In this way, the writing and formulating part doesn’t distract me from the experience itself. In the second session, I then focus more on the overall experience and how the different aspects fit together, while also writing a more coherent note for Steepster.

However, different approaches work for different people, tea drinking is a very personal and subjective activity after all. I wouldn’t worry about having multiple notes for the same tea, each capturing only a facet of the tea. In some sense, that feels more natural, since different sessions and their circumstances will interact uniquely with the tea in question to highlight specific aspects.


Thank you for your thoughts! I’m not surprised that there isn’t a general best practice – as you stated, the experience is so personal it would be difficult and maybe torturous to attempt standardization! Ultimately and selfishly, I hope to find a method that is most useful for me to review past thoughts and experiences.
I did end up buying two cakes of this tea. One for myself and one as a gift.
