From Farmerleaf

April 2021, tea is only harvested twice a year!

Made of selected old tea trees which grow at extreme altitude (2200 to 2500m)

You will enjoy the freshness and pine like fragrance of this tea, until the Cha Qi creeps on you…

Low bitterness, low astringency.

A tea of apparent simplicity that will surprise you in the middle of the session. Recommended if you have at least an hour free to fully appreciate it.

High altitude is often paired with better fragrance, and we can say that is the case here. Wang Qing Cong likes to process the tea on the greener side, like we do in Jingmai. A high temperature start, followed by a long low-temperature marathon towards a well made tea. With this processing, the fragrance is not explosive but rather contained in the tea soup, it only comes out after you’ve swallowed the tea soup. Due to the high altitude, you get a bit of both, you can get fragrance both in the nose and in the throat with this one.

But fragrance is just a detail for the hardcore Pu-erh aficionados, isn’t it? If you’re still reading this lengthy description, you’re probably here for the mouthfeel, Huigan and Chaqi. The tea soup is on the lighter side, it has low bitterness and astringency, do not expect a Menghai style brew.

The soup does have a certain oiliness, characteristic of big tree tea. It flows down easily through the mouth and leaves a trace of sweetness throughout. But once more, this is not the main selling point of this tea…

What will stun you in this tea is the body feel, like a lot of fine pu-erh teas out here, you won’t have a blast at the first brew, you need to be patient and let the tea deliver its power over ten or twenty minutes. Do not be tempted to brew the tea strong at the start, you’d surely get a more powerful brew but you would miss the fine fragrance, which shows variations around a common theme in the first couple of brews. Feel free to increase the steeping times later in the session. It will be hard to outlast this tea, you will probably end the session before the tea has given out all its content, unless you are in search of lost time.
