From Nannuoshan

ORIGIN: Anhua, Hunan, China
MEANING: Fungus brick golden flower (fu zhuan jin hua)
HARVEST TIME: 2016
TASTE: Acacia honey, raw grain, cooked apple

With a warmly-spicy and fruity character reminiscent of a Taiwanese oolong, this brick tea reveals its processing as a Hei Cha in its groundedness and the longevity of its infusions. Before being compressed, the large, green leaves and stems were seeded with Jin Hua, or Golden Flower (Eurotium Cristatum), a prized fungus which develops on many Hei Cha, enhancing their flavour and making them subtly sweeter. Though scientific research into the positive health effects of Jin Hua is ongoing, it has been part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine for long time. Subtly earthy, it offers several infusions of acacia honey, raw grain, beeswax, cooked apple, and sour berry flavours, for a long and satisfying (and perhaps especially healthy) gongfu cha session.

For a vintage version of the same tea (some also with Jin Hua), try our Fu Zhuan 1991.

A fairly average Fu Zhuan with a largely woody and nutty character and an intriguing numbing and cooling mouthfeel. In its aromas, it reminds me of candles, wooden cabinets and ant mounds, while the taste bring hints of sawdust, coffee fruitiness, and some sour fermantation notes.
