From Tea Encounter

Zhang Jia Wan lies in Mansa in North Yiwu. Teas from this from this region are smooth and silky with a refreshing and sweet aftertaste. The trees grow at an altitude of 1400 meters. Teas from the Yiwu region are very sweet and Zhang Jia Wan tend to be one of the sweetest ones in Yiwu.

The 2017 version already displays some nice age signs and it’s a truly sweet tea with some sweet potatoes, flowers and caramel notes. If you enjoy sweet teas this will be an excellent choice. A great Gushu tea to drink now and with great ageing potential.

This is a herbaceous tea and somewhat average among the ZSL long samples I’ve tried recently. It has big leaves and gives a good 200ml/g. It is a tea that is quite agreeable, but I doubt many would find it truly amazing.

The dry leaf aroma is sweet and grainy with a touch of fermented grapes. After the rinse, there are notes of grass compost, cape gooseberries and various flowers as well.

The rinse itself tastes mineral and savoury with a note of fresh grains. Honey sweetness permeates the whole session. It is complemented by flavours of apples and dry grass early on, and of wood, milk, and even garlic later. Infusions in the peak of the steeping curve are also somewhat biting and spicy. The mouthfeel is thicker and sticky there, otherwise I didn’t find the texture to be that noteworthy.

The aftertaste is body warming and biting. There is a lot of residual sweetness and a clover leaf taste.
