From Chawangshop

“Dong Zhuang” is the abbreviation of Yang Lou Dong tea house. Yang Lou Dong Chibi city is the origin of Qing Zhuan, the invention began in the Tang Dynasty, but the prosperity actually was during the Ming and Qing Dynasties time.

High quality dark tea from Hubei province. Used high quality raw material – First Grade Hei Mao Cha (黑毛茶) and made by traditional technique (selection, fermentation, high temperature steaming, compression, drying).

This tea is easy to prepare and brewed in gaiwan. Smell of dry leaves is very intensive and great. A complex aroma displaying mild tobacco and raisin. Brew tea have deep orange colour and also intensive fragrance. Sweet and smooth, never bitter, leaving a pleasant smooth woody and sweet aftertaste. This is the highest quality “qing zhuan” from Hubei.

I’ve not had a wide variety of these Hubei Green Brick teas. Having drunk through two bricks of others and a brick and a half of this, I think I have a general grasp of the category’s outlines. All of these I’ve had share some common characteristics: Rougher/chopped leaves, heavy mineral sweetness, and dried fruit and woody flavors.

This one in particular takes a bit to open up as the compression seems to be higher than others I’ve tried. It starts out as a dried fruit bomb with lots of dark sweet aromas. The next thing I notice is a raisin-y-toffee-wood flavor that will be with the tea for the rest of the session. Once it really opens up it is pretty consistent steep-to-steep.

Low/no bitterness or astringency. Nothing of note with the texture. This is the most interesting green brick I’ve tried. While it i doesn’t really blow me away, it is always a safe and reliable tea to reach for. Really easy drinking stuff. If you’ve been run off by cheaper, bland, super chopped up, Hubei heicha in the past and are looking to give the catagory another chance, this seems to be a good option.
