From Crimson Lotus Tea

We released this special tea for the first time in 2018 with the promise from the farmers we work with that we would protect the location of the garden they had found. We’ve been to this garden and it is amazing but not easy to get to. We traveled by motorcycle more than an hour. The path was mostly single track, steep, and muddy through tight forest paths. The motorcycles only get you so far. Then we had to hike a few kilometers with a lot of vertical gain.

The tea in this cake is from that garden. We were really impressed with how much better the tea was this year. The tea last year was amazing but this year’s harvest was exceptional! The material itself is full bodied and thick in the mouth but soft in presentation. It is smooth and swallows easy. There is minimal bitterness and astringency, but if you push it you get a floral experience reminiscent of orchids. The overall character of this tea borders on the savory and vegetal side but there is a wild essence that makes it interesting. The tea energy is impressive! This tea is sweet from the early steeps and has a lingering aftertaste. The middle steeps hits your palate like a dark wildflower honey. This is a very enjoyable tea.

This tea is a labor of love for the tea farmers involved. It’s not easy to get out to this garden and everything they pick needs to be packed all the way back out for processing in town. There are not a lot of experiences like this to be had in Yunnan anymore. This is a tea to appreciate and enjoy.

This is a very mellow and approachable young sheng, one that I have been burning though because it really seems best drunk sooner rather than later. It’s a pleasant contrast from the 2019 autumn Lao Man’E cake I bought along with it, which is a promising but powerfully bitter tea that will need to do some hard time in storage to temper it. Individual flavor notes are hard to pin down, but the texture is silky and perfectly astringent and the hui gan is very pleasant.
My order came with a 20g sample of the 2018 version of this tea, which I have not yet tasted. I’m curious to see how that one handles aging further.
