From Bitterleaf Teas

This tea is an excellent example of why we prioritize environment as the top criteria when sourcing puer. This tea comes from outstanding remote land in Mangga, in the Shuangjiang area (Lincang). These trees have been owned for generations by one family, but mostly left untended and abandoned until recently.

The area where this tea comes from has been affectionately labelled “Cobra Land” after many tea pickers have come across cobras while picking. Although cobras can be hazardous to one’s health (especially if bitten), they are a good sign in tea growing areas, as it usually indicates minimal human interference.

While we’re not always fans of the label “wild”, these untended trees exhibit the unique fragrance and “forest character”, for lack of a better term, that wilder teas tend to have. The fragrance is accompanied by a pleasant sweetness that make this tea very refreshing. There is also a noticeable sensation in the body, making this a tea that’s difficult not to be taken by.

Picking period: Pre-April 15

Gongfu!

Tried to have a nice & relaxing outdoor tea session last week but the weather wasn’t having it – so it was very windy and cold. The tea was still good though! VERY sweet liquor, eating early infusions, with syrupy red fruit notes at the top of the sip. The slips into more vegetal body and finishing flavours with fluctuations between floral and refreshing garden peas and more astringent collard greens. This might be my favourite from this year’s Spring puerh ‘dragonball’ sampler – that I’ve tried so far, anyway…
