70g Zang Zhuan Cha
Brand & Factory : Ya An Tea Factory | Type : Shu/Cooked | Vintage Year : 2006
(rating: 4.2 out of 5)
The word "Zang" is actually a short form for "Xi Zang", which means Tibet. Black tea brick has a long history in Tibetan culture and is an indispensable part of their diet. Drinking tea brick is known to help Tibetans keep their body warm, aid digestion, cleanse the body of accumulated lactic acid, rejuvenate inner strength and increase stamina. A Tibetan can fall sick in a matter of days without it. Our Zang Zhuan Cha is compressed using tea leaves that have been aged for at least two years.

Very unique and appreciated scent, flavor and drinking experience. Clean and light scent of wet lumber hinting of undertones of classic Pu´er. A light amber color, a taste conjuring images of toasted nuts and a very light spicy aftertaste clinging to the edges of your lips. Overall excellent taste experience.

Un délice... Une saveur profonde, douce et complexe à la fois. Une belle surprise.

Ricardo (2/15/2012)
Очень странный привкус горчинки есть в этом чае. Не похож на Шу Пуэр, очень бледный как мне показался... =) Главное - не передержать при заварке. За необычность - 5. Очень интересный. В коллекции Must Have! =)

This is a very interesting and unusual brick. It has nothing to do with the common Shu taste and I wouldn´t classify it as pu erh either (hei cha?), I’d read many reviews before tasting it so I expected many things. The tea is really sweet, and the smell is difficult to describe, it resembles a special mixture of wet wood leaves and sweet nuts, maybe chestnuts, the color is light brown-red, very transparent. It´s perfect for digesting but does not have that strong effect on stomach, nevertheless, having something to eat before is recommendable as it lowers the sugar level quite quickly. I really like this tea but it will probably work as a good breakfast or after-lunch ritual during colder days as it does not have that cooling effect required in summer, rather the opposite.

A very nice Puer. It has a nice flowery smell and taste. It is not too strong. It has been the first time that I tried compressed tea so I poured hot water on it a couple of times. It gave several nice infusions. I really like it. :)

Laszlo (6/29/2011)
I was expecting a strong and dark shu pu´er,while this one is quite light and refreshing.The aroma is unique,never found in any other pu´er,but i found it woody and a bit unpleasant.Not a bad tea,neither a good one.

Pierantonio (9/1/2008)

I like this tea! It’s slightly sweet and spicy. The flavor reminds me of clover and honey. I made a pitcher of iced tea from it, and it was delicious and refreshing. The brewed tea is lighter in color, and doesn’t hold up to repeated brewing. I stopped at five infusions, but that didn’t stop me from ordering more.

David (7/2/2007)
I might have underbrewed this tea, but I think not. A quarter brick, which should be about 5g, for a 100ml Gong Fu infusion for 20s (and then 25s, 30s and so on). It was not at all pungent, but just a very pleasant dark tea that I could sit and drink for hours. It lasted well through many infusions, and at least in my eyes, one of the easiest PuErhs to date. While not the most exciting of teas, it has that quality you look for in a tea you drink every day, so it is on the contender list for becoming my Daily Tea.

Al primo assaggio non mi ha convinto ma con le infusioni successive ho apprezzato le sue proprietà energetiche e digestive l´aroma non particolarmente complesso è legnoso e persistente piacevole e caldo soprattuto nei pomeriggi invernali. un buon acquisto.

Tommaso (11/8/2019)
The best kind of pu-erh ive tasted so far. it has a nice sweetness to it and an earthiness that is not too overpowering, when brewed at ~90 °C for a few seconds.

Jeppe Dalsgaard (5/1/2019)
Good after multiple infusions yet woody and stringent

kseniya (1/10/2015)
Thank you. Good choose. Best quality. Taste great.

Natalia (7/29/2014)
It was okay. It´s drinkable. No matter how I brewed it, it seemed week for a pu-erh and had a strange subtle aftertaste that reminded me of the toothpaste from my childhood. I haven´t tried a large number of pu-erh teas, but the majority of the ones I´ve tried seemed to have a rich woody/spicy note that I enjoy. This one didn´t meet my expectations and lacked in that richness. Not a fan of this one. It was fun to try though.

Kimberley (3/20/2013)
Very interesting, i love how it morphs as it cools and in subsequent steeps. Very earthy at first, it mellows to a lovely chocolate, earthiness with roasted flavors that keep you guessing. Each swallow fills you and your soul. I can´t wait to explore this style more. This is a tea for coffee lovers and wine lovers who enjoy dark brooding earthy wines.

ryan (4/26/2012)
Good puerh, very useful for serving (it comes in four blocks, each of which makes one pot). Not exceptional but is certainly what you´d expect in a nice puerh (earthy, strong, relaxing).

Matthew (4/3/2012)
A complex very delicious fast. I bout 70gr next time will order bigger 200gr package

Anton (2/10/2012)
Very good one.It tastes strong even after multiple infusions.70g pack was excellent so I decided to order a bigger one (200g)/Also interesting to see how it´ll age.

Pavel (3/9/2011)
This is a wonderful tea for autumn mornings. Its strong caracter and its determined taste fills you up with power to embrace these first cold, rainy days. I drink it with a little milk in it; rice or oats milk drops successfully round off its fullness into a high class, indispensable beverage.

Maja (10/18/2010)
I made this tea 3 times, using different amounts of leaves each time (it’s hard to estimate the amount, as it’s packed so tightly), and I found the amount that suits me. I’m no pu erh expert, but this is one excellent cup of tea. It’s woody, but light, and very soothing. I somehow feel stronger and healthier after a few cups of this. Lasted for about 5 infusions.

Sivan (7/14/2010)
It was drinkable, but... Not really a tea for me. It was fun to try, though. I´ve never had a real compressed pu-erh before.

anon (4/5/2010)
I loved this tea, It exceeded my expectations. When brewed as directed it yields many delicious and different cups.

Christopher (11/15/2009)
When they say these bricks are specially prepared for the strong preferences of the Tibetan people they are not kidding! I drink many kinds of tea and this was a VERY potent brew. It does not have such a strong chi or warming after effect like pu erh normally does. Instead it has a fore-front astringency and racy effect like strong hong cha. I can see why Tibetans would prefer using this with milk, salt, and butter. Having said all that the quality was excellent. The method of preparation and storage I believe leads to a lot of dust I would wash the leaves at least three times before drinking. The taste while strong is very balanced. The infusions 1-3 had mild hei cha raw green flavor like liu an or liubao. Infusions 3-6 had red-tea hongcha/ hay flavors. 6-10 were very sugar cane syrupy sweet. Of all the post fermented tea this one tastes the most aromatic and most like hong cha leading to it being used with dairy. Personally, not my favorite cuppa. However, great quality, good price, and very very interesting.

Charles (8/1/2009)
This is great. After one cup you feel like you can do (almost) anything.

Annemarie (6/2/2009)
Tasty, compressed brick look charming and dring with great plesure

Alexey (11/12/2008)
I did not like it. To me it tasted a bit like soap. Or something artifictial i can´t describe.

Thomas (10/17/2008)

IVAN (10/16/2008)
I have tried the tea one time and in the process of figuring out how to best prepare the tea and how much to use.

Carol (1/14/2008)
This is my first experience with Puerh tea. I have to rate it only as satisfactory because I didn’t know what to expect. Overall, there is a very subtle finish that I enjoy but I wish there was more of it. Not my favorite type of chinese tea, though I may need to try other Puerh types before finalizing my decision.

Joseph (11/28/2007)
nice tea. im glad thay ofer puerh teas in the 70gr size.

ryan (9/26/2007)
Strong tea, which passed first phase of postfermantation - no bad WoDui odours, smooth and sweet.

Armandas (9/11/2007)
A complex, spicy taste that does not quite rise to the level of some of the puerh teas I have tasted. Still it is a very good, very satisfying tea that feels very smooth going down.

Richard (4/19/2007)
a great pu erh i will be ordering more soon light and refreshing not a bad flavor brewed steeped 6 times great latenight tea a must try even for people who have not tryed pu erhs before

william (3/8/2007)
This is a very unique tea, and it completely exceeded my expectations. It’s not very earthy or pu-ery as I though it would be, but it is delicious- sweet, fruity, light, refreshing, with a slippery texture on the tongue! I’m not sure why the Tibetans go sick in a couple of days without it, but my theory is that they are hooked and are going through withdrawals!
