"Small Tea Cake" was made by order of "Moychay.ru" company at the plant "Da Ye" in the spring of 2016. It was produced from "mao cha" harvested in 2011 - buds and upper leaves of tea bushes from plantation areas of Pu'er region.
90 g teacake of medium density, easily broken into mid-size strings of twisted dark brown leaves, thin stems and reddish buds. The fragrance of dry tea is moderate nutty-berry. The infusion is transparent and has a rich red-brown hue.
The bouquet of ready tea is mature, multi-layered, rich woody-nutty with notes of rustic bread, wet soil, autumn leaves, bitter chocolate and dried berries. The taste is rich, smooth, sweetish with nuances of juicy nut bitterness and light berry sourness. The fragrance is deep, calm, "autumn" with nutty and berry nuances. A rich velvety aftertaste.
Preparation: brew with boiling water (95-100°C) in a gaiwan or a teapot made of porous clay for Shu Pu'er. The proportion is 5 - 6 g per 100 ml. Use "pouring brewing method" (pouring water through leaves, gradually extending exposure time). The leaves can last for 10 brews.
A great choice of everyday tea – rich, mature, multilayered, extremely well-balanced in its taste and effect.
