This is a Pu-erh raw cake compressed in 2008, from leaves harvested in the Bang-Dong of Lin-Cang, a core production area of Pu-erh teas. The tea leaves were harvested during the Autumn season when all grains were flowering (Gu Hua), and thus given the name Gu Hua Cha (谷花茶).
Pu-erh teas can be harvested for three seasons in Yun-Nan: spring, summer and autumn. The Autumn teas are generally considered to be of less pricey as spring crops, buy more expensive than summer crop, while others believe they are of value for money for the following reason:
This tea has been naturally aged since 2008, yielding a rich reddish gold brew colour. It has a mild smoky flavour, mellow with almost no bitterness or astringency, finishes with a commending refreshing Hui Gan (aftertaste) lingering for long after. This is surely an aged pu-erh raw cake with a high value/price ratio for daily consumption.
