From Hillside Tea

Grown in the famous Wuyi Mountain region, this tea is looked over by teamaster Chen Zhen Jia, otherwise known as Uncle Chen. The tea grown by Uncle Chen and the Chen family is revered as the highest quality in Wuyishan known for its rocky soils, creating adversity for the plant, forcing it to increase efforts for growth and maturation. The Wuyishan Scenic Area, where the Chen family inherited 13 acres from their grandfather, is the only place where this type of soil is found in the region. The area is now protected by the government and is not cultivated in rows of monoculture like many other tea producing regions in China. The tea trees, ranging from a few years to over a hundred years old, are spread out through large groves allowing for a more natural habitat. Chemical and pesticide use is strictly prohibited. This is a type of tea referred to as, Jin Jun Mei which translates to ‘Golden Beautiful Eybrow’ and is composed of delecate, small-leaf culivars that resemble just that.

Trade with Vallhallow. #2. Tea experiences take a pivotal role in the lives of many Steepsters. They can range from tea shop experiences to something as simple as being blown away by the first sip of tea. That was me with this tea. Something about that first sip just made me go, “Whoa I need to write a note righ now.” Malty flavors surrounded by chocolate and woodsy notes. Maybe a bit of rosewood and a slight smokiness as well. This is after steeping it a little longer to see what I would uncover. The first sip had some lighter fruity tones. No astringency as of now. In a way, this somewhat reminds me of the Laoshan Black from Verdant Tea. The dry leaf has great coloring. Dark choclate/ umber tones with specks of golden threads. A sign of high quality and well-processed leaf. And cute tiny trichomes sticking to the inside of the bag.
