The idea that raw puerh tea needs to age before you can enjoy the tea is losing currency. This cake from March 2018 picking and which was pressed only last year is a wonderful example of how the tea makers are being very successful in making delicious puerh right off the factory. Also the idea that organic puerh tea - most of which are new cultivation - isn't as good as puerh from other older tea plants is not true as this tea shows.
There are floral notes in this tea that combined with the slight earthiness and sweetness make it delightful! The tea itself was grown in Wuliang mountain located near Lancang river. The tea garden is owned by Zuxiang company, which started organic tea production in 2006, and after which this tea is named.

I am just sitting down with this tea now and am really enjoying it, more than what I had remembered. The soup is a beautiful golden green color and the leaf aroma is wonderful. I get a bit of lemon, honey, orchid, echinacea, and a few other hints. The taste is much the same; pleasant citrus fruits with a very sweet aftertaste. It’s a thicker tea, but still has a nice softness to it. Leaves my mouth coated and has a slight dryness to it. Very good tea.
