Gu fa means “Ancient Technique” and refers to the extremely unusual method used to produce this remarkable tea. A Tie Guan Yin varietal, grown on Pan Ying Mountain 盤營繕 southwest of Guizhou, the leaves are picked in early spring and left to rest on mats for 30-40 days. The idiosyncratic pluck involves keeping long stems which retain water and rehydrate the leaves after the sun sets. This continuous drying and remoistening of the leaves causes them to oxidize, meaning that this “green tea” made in what appears to be an archaic Guizhou style, is more like an oolong than a modern unoxidized green tea. Complex floral notes, a green-gold liquor and a soft mouthfeel make Gu Fa Xiang reminiscent of a Taiwanese Baozhong, with a distinctive “orchid” fragrance common to all of Master Lin’s Pan Ying Mt. greens and oolongs.
