There will be from 1. July aplied new rules for charging EU VAT rates that will be chosen according the billing country. The other (Non. EU) countries will get the product prices (inc. SK VAT) that are shown in the shop. The EU countries, if other than 20% VAT will have the adjustment made during the checking out process. This change is still in a testing stage so apologies and possibly report any weird calculations.
Name: Chafang Lao Cha ’16
Year: 2020 spring
Weight: cca 200 grams
very distinct ageing aroma that reminds dry sweet fruits, rather tropical, deep sweet heavy perfume like, taste is pure with balanced bitterness that is tasty, woody and earth like tones typical for old tea tree pu-erh teas, feeling nuts, almost almond like taste, never-ending steeping marathon,
I called this tea Lao Cha, Old tea, still it is ‘only’ 5 years old stored in a maocha bag, the tea was ordered by a Chinese merchant who ‘forgot’ to come back and pay for it, I would say nothing happens only by accident, it was meant for someone else, at this moment it is a perfect chance to see this tea ageing and compare it to fresh cakes
notes takes on 2nd May 2021, tonight I compared this tea with Danzhu 2020 and 2014 cake, all from the same tea garden, I must say that this 2016 forgotten maocha came out the most liked, the most balanced, the sweetness was round and very well ‘encapsulated’ in the overal taste profile, the Danzhu 2020 is still very ‘rude’ and ‘naughty’ tea, its strong character needs to calm down, the similar was with 2014 cake that I am not sure what tea trees were used, but most probably similar to Danzhu, although a tasting profile was enriched with wa typical ageing / storage notes that I noted with 1980’s BaoZhong maocha that might be in stock soon
