In the poll the fu zhuan was in the lead when i went to make tea so here is a long post on fu zhuan for #heichahumpday - 2011 shaanxi from @chawangshop .
i received a message asking about fu zhuan so here it is. fu zhuan is a heicha traditionally from hunan, though this one was made in shaanxi, and pressed into bricks. over time 金花 or golden flowers will appear with proper storage though they can be added like you would add culture to make yoghurt. they help produce a y****y honey flavor and a mellow character. and as a bonus the golden flowers, more formally called eurotium cristatum, are proven to have numerous benefits according to several journal articles i've read. i can't remember the details but they help the body fight off gram positive bacteria (like bacterial dysentery) and i think help with cholesterol. i don't buy tea for health benefits but if i did this would be a good one. especially, considering price per gram is often less than $0.10. you may have to buy a kilo though. great for longer term aging too with that amount.
anyway, this tea specifically was made in shaanxi as part of an economic stimulus package. i'm not able to detect a difference between it and ones from hunan. i did, however, make it far to strong today. almost like the singapore stored fuhai sheng from @adventureineverycup. more herbal with some bitterness today but it's normally a mellow y****y honey with some floral character. i think this one is sold out but email @chawangshop if you're curious about it. you never know. 😊
