Product name “国guo韵yun 60” means “Rhythm of Country 60” which was made for commemoration of 60 years anniversary of PRC. Tea materials are picked from tea plantation with altitude above 1200m in 2006 year. After 3 years natural storage, these tea leaves were pressed into disc cake in 2009 year.
There is also a sibling of this tea with same weight also a disc cake but sheng cha.
Shou cha which was manually processed by “渥wo堆dui” technology and which has certain relationship with tea leaves’ blending technology. This process accelerates the fermentation manually and let the tea reach a level which will cost sheng cha many years to achieve. During the process of “WoDui”, tea leaves are under high humidity and heat coming from inside of the piled tea leaves themselves, at the same time oxygen and microbe and enzyme work together on the substances contained in the tea. After turned over physically some times the process will end there, then tea leaves will be pressed into cake as product. But the evolution of tea itself doesn’t end and will continually going forward along with time. The taste will be mellower and bitterness and astringency will keep declining. So “the older the better” theory is not just suitable for sheng cha but also for shou cha, though it is more obvious and easier to understand on sheng cha.
