From Bitterleaf Teas

With this year’s material comprising of a mixed picking of young and older arbour trees, this tea offers up a full flavour and pleasant mouth feel. Kunlu is known for having wild and semi-wild trees, as well as a wide range of varietals that can be found, giving different pickings and productions their own unique style.

Just as with the previous year, this tea starts out with a mineral-sweet flavour, some gentle bitterness and a slight vegetal quality that continues to build with each brew. Both the fragrance and sweetness are long lasting and distinct, accompanied by a nice body feeling.

Picking period: Blend of 1st and 2nd flush, pre-April 15

Gongfu Sipdown (1540)!

Finished my last dragonball this morning with some sweet red grapes snacked on in between the steeps!! I’m keeping the steep times really short because I’m looking to pull some more of the sweet crisp vegetal and mineral notes of this tea, but not the progressive bitterness and astringency and it’s working alright! There’s something about the vegetal notes here – especially early in this tea session – that remind me of the taste of freshly picked cucumbers or sugar snaps straight from the garden in summer. It’s the clean sweetness mixed with the slight minerality of the soil that hadn’t been totally washed off yet. Later steeps progress to more of a green bell pepper type of vegetal flavour, but leaning hard into the minerality and picking up bitterness. It’s good, though not my normal preference and not something I’d repurchase simply because of that fact & I’m happy to have the grapes to nibble on as those elements amp up as this session pushes forward…
