Windy Village Gua Feng Zhai Arbor Tree Sheng Pu'erh Tea Cake 刮风寨
We are thrilled to offer this tea hailing from Gua Feng Zhai, literally "windy village" in Chinese. Gua Feng Zhai is one of the most renowned teas in Yiwu mountains, which is one of the six historical pu'erh tea mountains of Yunnan province. Gua Feng Zhai is right at the border between China and Laos, in the national forest territory. The locals are Yao ethnic group. Gua Feng Zhai tea is well known for its chaqi and great floral and fruity notes, while yet maintaining a full mouth feel. This tea surely showcases the very essence of Gua Feng Zhai tea, that is very aromatic, rich, complex, smooth, and sweet, with long-lasting aftertaste. Victoria has far off the beaten path to source this tea. Due to its popularity and rare high quality, this tea is so thought after that it is so difficult to get, even in the Chinese puerh tea market. The leaves are 100% pure from the village, first spring harvest, no blends or mixes like some others labeled as Gua Feng Zhai teas on the market. This is a truly special tea that you don't want to miss.
