From Moychay

Dark tea «Pyrite» from Anhua (Yiyang County, Hunan Province), harvest 2016. The microbe Eurotium Cristatum or Jin Hua (Golden Flowers), extremely healthy, participates in the creation of this tea. Its colonies look like yellow grains scattered on the surface of the tea.

A 1000-gram briquette of medium density, easily exfoliates into large dark brown leaves with cuttings. The aroma is restrained, woody-herbaceous with a hint of rosin. The liquor is transparent, with a shade of dark amber.

The bouquet of the brewed tea is mature, complex, woody-herbaceous with notes of autumn leaves, rosin and baked fruits. The aroma is deep and warm, complex, fruity-herbaceous. The taste is full-bodied and smooth, sweetish, a bit tart, with delicate bitterness of dried berries and a lingering finish.

Final Anhua heicha sample from Moychay. I’ve not had all of them, but all the ones that interested me. This looks like an inoculated heicha rather than natural jin hua formation.

1st impressions: The tea smells of tart berries with a woody background. The raspberry ketone note takes the lead on flavor. There is a synthetic like character to it (but this compound does occur naturally). The is also some apple skin like things happening in the background. There is also an off putting green bitterness in the background.

Drink down: The more I drink this the more I think of the skin of red delicious apples. That pithy, dry herbal, fruitiness. Brews up pretty dark. Nothing of note for the texture. A little mouth drying. No real body feeling. Not very energizing.

Pretty meh. Apple peels. The more you brew it, the more that sums the tea up.

Flavors: Apple Skins
