DESCRIPTION

This 2016 Buddha's Hand (AKA: Foshou) tea comes directly from Yongchun, Fujian province, the very region considered as the birthplace for Foshou varietal, it is indeed often referred as Yongchun Foshou, where it has a cultivation history of around 300 years. These Foshou tea trees grow wildly at at altitude of 600m. above sea level. Only more recently, Wuyishan introduced this Yongchun varietal and cultivated it sporadically in various Zhengyan or Full Rock farms.
.
The tea gets its name after the Bergamot fruit - also known as Buddha's Hand - because this varietal's fresh leaves are big as palms or hands and somehow resemble bergamots. After leaves have been harvested, this tea leaves follow a traditional Rock Tea craft processing. This Foshou was “medium fire roasted", that means charcoal-roasted at about 130°C for 3 to 5 hours.

TASTING NOTES

Aging is beautifully mellowing and smoothing flavours and textures of this Buddha's Hand, developing very nuanced flavours. Dry leaves are pure cocoa and with spices clove-like notes on the nose. After soaking the leaves the aroma on the lid and leaves becomes more floral, while certain woody sweetness comes into play as well.
.
The bottom of the Gong Dao Bei becomes real caramel sweetness to the nose. Once on mouth many different flavours become harmonious and perfectly balanced, the fire is present, the wood, the minerality, and floral touch and spiciness completes a smooth and rich and full of body. Very long lasting and sweet aftertaste.
