From Moychay

«Shou Zhu Fu Zhuan» («Handmade Longevity Tea Brick») from Anhua (Hunan Province) made in 2014. The microbe Eurotium Cristatum or Jin Hua (Golden Flowers), extremely healthy, participates in the creation of this tea. Its colonies look like yellow grains scattered on the surface of the tea. Golden Flowers live on the Longevity Mushrooms, Fu Lin (Poria cocos, Poria coconut), the name of which was included in the name of the tea.

500 g tea briquette of pressed tea leaves with stiff cuttings. The aroma is calm, woody. The liquor is transparent, with yellow ocher shade.

The bouquet of the brewed tea is mature, spicy-woody, with notes of oak moss, autumn leaves, mushrooms and dried fruits. The aroma is deep and warm, spicy-woody. The taste is full-bodied and mild, buttery, sweetish, with light woody tartness, fruity sourness and refreshing finish.

1st impressions: Not dark, but not green. Middle fermentation. The wet leaves smell autumnal, but with caramel, honey, minty, citrus, berries. Really mild flavor. Kinda thin texture, not a lot of jin hua, some cooling sensations rising in my throat. The Sprite like lemon/lime flavor is interesting.

Drinking it down:
The notes on their webpage mentions “oak moss” and that is a kinda esoteric note to bring up. I have dabbled in perfumery and can pick that out in here, but I just thought it was an odd thing to mention.

The cooling citrus thing is really different from the usual warm dark profile I expect with fu bricks. The texture did thicken up. The berry note seems to be headed to a cherry wood flavor. Really a solid summertime tea. Fruity, sweet, and light.
