This 2009 Tianjian heicha has been our go-to post meal tea ever since it arrived. It has a gentle and warming smoky flavour that doesn’t overdo it. Having undergone pine-smoking during as a result of processing it also has some very pleasant pine and spice notes.
The soup is smooth and enjoyable, coating the mouth and leaving a cooling sensation in the throat after it’s gone.
Speaking of being gone, this tea will be available in limited supply, with only a few 2kg bamboo baskets in stock.

Only my second Heicha, but this is nice. Grandpa brewed. Sweet, woody with a hint of smoke. Will have to make a second try with gaiwan but I will probably grab another order before it disappears.

A bit more herbal than your usual heicha
Good for a late evening session !

It’s a smokey black tea. I don’t actually like smokey black teas, preferring the floral sweet high-mountain black teas, but I wanted to double check… Nothing bad here, just not my preference. Nice and strong. Lovely quality.

This was a very nice tea to try. However, ultimately, I found it to be a bit unremarkable beyond its pine-like aftertaste. The pine note is not overpowering but also unmistakable. Besides that, there is an aroma of unripe walnuts and forest floor. As for the taste, I found it to be mostly crisp and sweet with a mild spiciness and a resinous quality in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is smooth and milky with a medium body.

The things that best describe this tea for me: liquid salted caramel and a pure beautiful color, impressive. Sweet ans spicy.
