Product Description

Affection for Douyi Raw Pu-erh Tea 2011 Spring Cake is a tribute to the village of Douyi on Nannuo mountain. Nannuo mountain is located in the eastern part of Menghai County of Yunnan Province's Xishuangbanna Prefecture. It has an average elevation of 1,400 meters above sea level. The entire mountain is covered in shaded forests of green bamboo and other trees. Ecological conditions are excellent.

This JK Tea Company tea is directly from a tea farmer in Douyi village (it is located in the highest altitude in Nannuo mountain). The uncompressed tea material (máochá) is from tea trees that are over 200 years old (see 3 Key Factors in Máochá That Affect Pu-erh Quality on our blog). The tea leaves are rich in ripe fruit and wild honey aroma. This tea has a very sweet taste especially for a new Pu-erh raw tea with lingering aftertaste sweetness in the mouth.

This is a high-end tea, compressed by the traditional stone method and worthy of long-term storage and placement in your private collection.

Steeping guidelines:

Gaiwan: 8 grams per session (180ml gaiwan); the first several infusions should be 92-95°C (190°F) for about 10 seconds; later infusions should be about 15 seconds. Note: Pour the water around the edge of the gaiwan to avoid burning the tender tea buds; don't pour the hot water on the tea leaves directly. Do not use any strainer/filter to filter this tea, as it is clean enough. Also, use of a strainer will greatly influence the denseness of the tea liquid.

Number of infusions: at least 18 times in a gaiwan

Net Weight: 357g/cake
