From Taiwan Sourcing

Founded in the end of 20th century and was named Jinchang Hao (敬昌號) at the time. it was considered as some of the best private Pu-Erh companies like Tongqing Hao (同慶號) which meant the highest standard of its time. The company eventually became a historical term, but the tea they made was still remembered by tea lovers, and therefore this tea cake was born.

Using wild material from the village at the east side of Yi Wu – Mansa (曼灑), and followed a proper withering and killing green technique, this tea cake aimed to re-create the wonderful memory of an old Jinchang tea cake could bring. The exterior package has the graphic of the original inner ticket (內票) printed to inform the collector of its origin.

I had a pretty much the same impression of the tea as Nate described in his note. It is indeed a very clean and smooth tea with mostly woody character. Brewing the whole 10g in a 150ml gaiwan gave about 20 infusions, which was a lot to drink in one day, but at least it was the only tea today for me.

The aroma is comforting. It reminds me of wooden cabins, moss a lot, to a lesser extent also dungeons and apricot pie. Taste is sweet and woody with notes of cedar, forest floor, fireplace, and a camphor-like finish. Towards the second half of the session, I also found notes of sourdough, nuts, earth and garlic. Liquor has a medium body and a slick, slightly metallic texture.

Oh how I’d like to be in a mossy cabin eating sourdough and apricot pie right now. :D

Woody, thick and on the dry side for the area. Very clean storage and steeps forever. Not much florals or fruit. This ones about the wood, tobacco and maybe sandalwood incense. A contemplative brew for a dismal day. Deep relaxing qi and overall smooth vibe. $220 for a 21 year old cake of tea of this quality is pretty reasonable. This is not a tea to knock your socks off but rather to soothe and warm. Nice yin vibe.
