We release Gong Ting Jin Hao 2019. In Chinese, Gong Ding means imperial and Jin Hao means golden downy hair.
Gong Ting Jin Hao consists a lot of tea buds. It’s very limited because in making tea, each twig of tea leaf collected consist of 3 to 4 tea leaves and only 1 tea bud.

Since the year 2019 was a very good year for tea, Gong Ting Jing Hao 2019 has a smooth and creamy drinking sensation, thick fruity flavor and strong aftertaste.

2019 was the Quality Year

The ripe pu-erh tea is made with microbiological fermentation from the raw pu-erh tea. Therefore, the quality of the raw pu-erh tea, affects the final quality of ripe pu-erh tea.

In the year when the yield is low, the manufacturer tends to trade the most of the tea as raw pu-erh tea, so there are very less chance to get the quality material for making ripe pu-erh tea.

In Yunnan, the raw pu-erh tea commands a higher price and usually manufacturer can earn more money with selling raw pu-erh tea.

During those years with low yield, the ripe pu-erh tea manufacturer has no choice but to collect the leaf being plucked on rainy days. However those tea leaves that are harvested on rainy days give lighter taste and flavor.

In 2019, we have stayed in Yunnan for two months during the spring tea season from the beginning till the end. Based on our view, 2019 was a great year for the quality tea.

In winter of 2018, there was adequate amount of rain, yet during tea plucking season, there was very little rainfall, except for about 10 days it was raining starting from the last week of April till the first week of May.

As the result, In 2019, in addition to the good quality of tea, the production was also abundant. Consequently, the quality of ripe pu-erh tea was excellent too.

Lovely taste and flavor after aging

Thanks to the quality year, Gong Ting Jin Hao 2019 has a very sweet flavor like dried Chinese dates. If you manage to age this tea for another 2-3 years or more, it will be even thicker and sweeter in both taste and flavor
Please keep the tea unopened in a warm place if you want to age it well. Based on our experience, tea ages well without oxygen. It is similar to the theory of aging wine.
