1998 CNNP “You Le Qiao Mu” Raw 357g
“You Le Qiao Mu” is a classic production produced by CNNP (aka Kunming Tea factory) under the supervision of Mr. Zou Jia Ju, CNNP supervisor. “You Le Qiao Mu” is an interesting and early example of a single-estate tea. The material is entirely early spring picked tea from the mountain of You Le in Xishuangbanna.

The tea itself has been well aged. The tea liquor is dark orange in color and the leaves when brewed are a dark green color with some brown tones. The taste is vibrant while retaining enough YouLe essence to offer an insightful glimpse into aged single-estate teas.
Date: Early Spring 1998
Net Weight: 357 grams per cake
Ingredients: 1998 You Le Mountain tea leaves
Produced by CNNP (Kunming Tea Factory)

Sometimes, when aliens are trying to build a hyperspace expressway, or your inevitable incarceration is looming, or the army besieging your castle has been there so long you’ve eaten all the food stores, dogs, cats, rats, and perhaps subjects named “Pat” that were available, the only remaining retort to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that have beset you is to gluttonously indulge in such hyperbolic excess that your successors will declare, “He was a right bastard, but he sure went out with a bang!”

But let us further suppose that, due to long and steady decline of your fortune, you need to find a way to do this in a far more fiscally responsible manner than you would prefer. This is where this tea comes in. I put so many leaves in my pot that deities looked down from on high and wondered who’d beset the land with a plague of tea. But it was glorious, I tell you, glorious.

Early steeps took a while to get going, but soon there were notes of canthol* and memphor*, and long lasting aftertastes. Soon, however, having completely overloaded all available receptors, I could only note the excellent scent of mauve coming from the mass of wet leaves and note that I tasted a hint of a month from next Thursday.

And all this at a low price! If you eschew sipping, scoff at quaffing, and consider chugging to be an unnecessarily effete manner of intake, I humbly suggest this tea might be for you.

Bring on your trials and tribulations, I’m caffeineted enough for anything.

  • - I realized I have no idea what differentiates camphor from menthol, really, so this might have been either, or neither, or both.
