New Release of Tang Jia Raw Pu-erh Tea 2020 and 2021

[2022.11.16] Posted By

We made Tang Jia Raw pu-erh tea using the tea leaves collected from old tea trees of a small village located at the south west of Lincang, Yunnan. The tea garden is located 2000-2100m of high mountain. Both 2020 and 2021 batch were made from the first flush of spring tea.

Tang family

Tang Jia means Tang family. This family owns one of the largest tea gardens in their village in West Ling Cang. Their tea gardens consist of many ancient tea trees which age above a few hundred years old. We were very lucky that we got to know them several years ago as they were the close relative of our primary tea manufacturer. Since 2019, we particularly rented their old trees tea garden through our manufacturer and producing pu-erh tea following our specific requirements.

Tang Jia garden maintained just like a wild tea

Tang Jia tea garden has been left unattended for more than 30 years. Long ago, Tang family was making a living on tea. However, ever since the present Mr. Tang succeeded the family, he has shifted his job into goat and cattle grazing. The tea garden was left for a long time, and it became a wild tea garden just like Tarzan. The tea garden becomes totally sustainable. The tea trees are in very healthy condition, just like wild plants. Till now, they use no fertilizer, no pesticide and no herbicide. Therefore, their tea grows very slowly and it gives a rich and concentrated taste with a long-lasting flavor. It has a thick taste, and it is not bitter or astringent, you can enjoy a well-rounded fullness of both its taste and flavor.

We optimize the production process in 2019

In 2019, we were in Yunnan. We stayed with our tea manufacturer to attend the production of Tang Jia raw pu-erh tea. We looked into every detail such as frying temperature, loading quantity and flipping speed. As a result, we managed to implement the frying method at optimum temperature, which made the taste of tea very creamy and rich as most of the natural substances in tea are well-remained thanks to the effort of paying full attention on each detail of processing.

The characteristics of tea in 2020 and 2021

For 2020 and 2021, we needed to depend on the manufacturer to manage the process since we could not travel to China due to Covid pandemic lock-down. Generally, the frying temperature is a little higher compared to year 2019, and as a result, the taste of tea is not as creamy as 2019 but cleaner and more transparent.

Between 2020 and 2021, 2020 consists of younger leaves as it is plucked in the middle of April, while 2021 batch was plucked in the middle of May.
You may wonder why the plucking of 2021 was late. Interestingly, even the May-plucked tea it is still the first flush tea.

In April, the weather is colder. So, tea leaves grow slower and their size is generally smaller. The smaller leaves have a higher proportion of buds and it makes the taste creamy with soft mouth-feel.

In May, the only remaining tea is from the very old tea trees (> a few hundred years old). Thanks to the age of tree, tea has a great finishing and taste is very clean. Besides, due to the warmer weather in May, leaf tends to be bigger which makes the taste not as creamy as April tea, but you will detect a more long-lasting finishing down the throat.

Basically, both April plucked (2020) and May plucked (2021) tea has its own characteristics. You may enjoy both Tang Jia raw pu-erh teas as it gives a different drinking sensation. and it is fun to experience tea harvested at different timing too.
