From Crimson Lotus Tea

One of the first blends we ever did was “Special Sauce” in 2014. We only sold 5 cakes. Each year we’ve hoped to be able to source material to make a similar tea. This year we were able to. This is a multi year, multi area blend of Jingmai material. It has youthful energy and aged wisdom. It is very aromatic and an absolute pleasure to drink.

The quality of the blend is important to us. Each cake was blended by hand to the specific ratio we planned. Each cake is as accurate as possible to our blending goal.

We had very limited resources to make this blend. We have just 21 cakes to sell. What we have is being sold only as cakes.

Just finished an amazing session of my sample of Special Sauce by Crimson Lotus Tea courtesy of Liquid Proust. Before the rest of my post, go buy a bing of this – only about 5 are in stock and it is totally worth it! The leaf of this is very nice looking, loosely compressed which suits my horrible skills with breaking apart tea. The aroma of the dry leaf is sweet and floral with the signature Liquid Proust storage aroma which is a nice musky mustiness. Wet, the aroma is very similar but sweeter. Taste is similar to the aroma – sweet, musky, and floral. Sweetness really, really lingers in the mouth and there is heavy presence in the throats right off the bat. Qi is very hard hitting, warmth and tingling around temples and sinuses started on my 3rd cup. Highly, highly recommended. Glen says that Slumbering Dragon has a similar musky floral character so I’ve got to check that out next. For some reason I thought it was a ye sheng purple so I’ve been avoiding buying a sample.

I’m putting this note here to remind myself that I’ve tried it, have a few grams more, and will review later….My first session with this tea cannot be the time in which I rate the tea…Once I play around with tea/water volume, I’ll give more details to the session…

I will point out that the flavor of the tea is consistent (floral, sweet), the soup is thick, and it is refreshing…but there’s more to this tea that must be found through experimentation….

To be continued….
