Fu Zhuan Shaanxi 2017

Product code: CSTVI-215
Add to my notebook

Fermenting tea in Shaanxi usually implies Erotium Cristatum to form Golden Flowers (Jin Hua) on the leaves. Visible on the pressed bricks, these light golden specks are responsible for the typical woody and fruity aromas found in their infusion.

This Fu Zhuan 2017 bears wonderful mushrooms scents backed up by whiffs of kelp and briny air. In the mouth, it develops a surprising complexity with notes of sweets (buckwheat honey) and fruits (dried apples and raisins). As is true with most aged teas, Fu Zhuan teas can easily be steeped many times.
