From Bitterleaf Teas

If our Nectar Milanxiang is a treat for mortals, then this Baxian truly is the Nectar of the Gods.

The tea produces an intoxicating lychee flavour both dry and when brewed. This is balanced with just the right amount of floral fragrance. As you continue through the steeps, this tea develops and evolves in layers, offering something different with each infusion. There is a consistent fruity sweetness that fills the mouth and throat, along with notes of cinnamon and spice in the mid steeps.

As with any quality Dancong, this tea offers a thick mouthfeel across many infusions. We recommend taking your time between infusions in order to appreciate what this tea has to offer, just be sure to also maintain a high water temperature for your steeps.

Our top Dancong offering for 2019, this tea both deserves and demands your attention. For this reason, we recommend this level of tea for more experienced drinkers and with a deeper appreciation of Dancong wulongs and those who are confident in their brewing abilities.

The material used for this tea comes from high altitude, ancient bushes in Yahou (垭后) and has undergone two traditional style charcoal roasting. In our opinion, this tea provides a great representation of the differences between the common and the uncommon.

I’m mainly a sheng drinker and typically only reach for an oolong when eating stir fry, curry or other Asian food. I bought this high end dancong last year (slightly over $1g iirc) , sampled fresh and was underwhelmed. This morning I was in the mood for something different than the young sheng I usually blast my system/tastebuds with, reached into my dancong bag and grabbed this. My oh my what a difference a year makes. Super oily, sweet, plums, lychee, hoisin and sesame oil notes complimented by notes of herbs I have yet to taste (and I have a big herb garden. Typically I only crave roasted oolongs when eating food that’s heavy on toasted sesame oil as they go together so well. I rarely drink them on their own. I could drink this stuff all the time. It steeped forever too. The qi is great too but different then sheng. A chilled out wave of relaxation and contentment. I’m beginning to understand oolong fanatics. I only wish I had a Peking Duck to go with this but they’re a little hard to come by in a small town in Central Pennsylvania at 9am. Luckily I have about 2 sessions left so I see a Peking duck in my near future
