From Zuo Wang Tea

Zheng Qi Tang 2019 won a Golden Prize at the Shenzhen International Tea Exhibition in Fall, 2019!

We are really excited to carry tea from this area. The tea gardens are deep in the mountain where the soil is red, producing tea leaves with a one of a kind taste and effect. They are almost spicy, producing a really warm feeling. The broth, even the raw leaf, causes the mouth to strongly salivate and the body to feel smooth.

The elevation of this area is 1,914 meters with trees ranging from 100 to 600 years old. This teacake is made of trees that are on average 300 years old. The highest areas in Zheng Qi Tang produce a powerful flavor with stronger bitter and astringent notes, with an equally powerful hui gan (returning sweetness). Just after a few cups in can leaving you feeling warm followed by a deep meditating feeling.

Location: Zheng Qi Tang, Mengku, Lincang, Yunnan

正氣溏 (Zheng Qi Tang) can mean healthy environment. 正氣 (Zheng Qi) in Chinese Medicine means vital energy, or upright Qi; Zheng Qi generally represents the totality of every good thing in our bodies. Tang can mean broth or pond.

I received a sample of this as part of the subscription box Zuo Wang provides on their site. Brewed out of a medium gaiwan. This tea won Golden Prize at the Shenzhen International Tea Exhibition, and I think it lived up to the hype. I ended up buying a cake.

This puerh is pretty fantastic, probably top 3 young shengs I’ve had recently. I got 16 steeps out of this one, but it had a bit more in it when I tossed it out. Started with flash steeps and worked up to about 4 mins. The tea is fruity, smooth, and has a thick body, and has a great feeling to it. The tea has a reasonable amount of astringency on the first couple steeps, but turns to sweetness after a moment. This can be expected with young shengs, and I imagine it will age very well. It gives notes of Tobacco, Honey, Melon, and Fruit.
