Hi everyone! Remember me? Miss y’all!! ;-)
Not gonna lie…I’ve had a few shopping sprees at Crimson Lotus in the last few months.
Yeah, yeah…I need a good spank!
But to my defense, I will say this: I don’t regret any of it. Top notch quality in the tea and the little pots. Yes, CL does know how to feed my addictions!
Now this tea. My friend MzPriss, who has exquisite tastes, bought this Bulang before I did and she was so excited about it, I could not pass on it since her and I are Teaplets and usually have the same tastes. She was right.
Since it comes in a gigantic brick, they sell it to you in chunks of 250g.
I used 12g for 170ml Jian Shui pot.
After the rinse, I can already tell this will be a treat. The smell is amazing.
Forget traces of barn, seaweed or leather that can be found occasionally in shou puerh. Think more “Caramel alert”. It’s sweet. And it takes over my mouth in a swirl of texture and body.
Yes, I will call this decadent. Creamy with notes of vanilla and dried fruits.
Laters steeps bring some cocoa but not the bitter type…it’s very mellow.
BONUS: it provides a nice relaxing qi, yes i feel like a noodle, and i like it.
Dexter the Dobe is looking at me funny cause I’m a little giddy and he feels it. yes, Momma is high on tea again!
This is something I will be craving. I’m glad I went for the 250g bag instead of the sample.
Now I’ll just close my eyes and dream of getting the 2 kilo brick!!
