From JalamTeas

Bada Wolf Sheng (Raw) Puerh
Region: Xiding Mountain Township, Yunnan
Type: Medium-High Altitude Puerh (1700 meters)
Harvest: Spring 2018
Harvesters: Hani minorities
Old tree Spring harvests are known for subtle and deep flavors along with great ‘qi’ or energy

Entering into the Year of the Pig with another animal with characteristics that befit our January offering, the wolf. “狼” or “wolf” is the name we are going with for this first tea of 2019 because it shares some characteristics with that great animal of endurance and relentlessness. Our Bada Wolf is from one of our great favourite tea Mountains in southwestern Yunnan Province, Bada Mountain.

It is a tea that, like our wonderful wolf (pronounced Láng in Mandarin) doesn’t relent in the mouth, or in the serving vessel. Known for its ability to continue to offer up soft strength in successive infusions, this Bada raw Sheng is a classic that runs and runs and runs.

This Bada Wolf offering continues a new tradition with JalamTeas to offer up old tree teas from zones that our procurer Jeff has identified as carrying classic traits. We don’t blend geographic zones, nor do we blend leaves from radically different aged bushes and trees. The leaves come from a superb space and environment at almost 1700 metres with high humidity and steep slopes for ideal drainage. We feel that the best way to offer up ‘terroir’ in a cup is to offer ‘one-zone, one-tea, teas’ rather than mixed harvests. Harvested from 100-200 year old tea trees from the Bada region in Spring of 2018, by Hani cultivators and tea makers, we feel it is a great way to begin a new western New Year.

This is a nice sheng, not a spectacular one, but it has no clear drawbacks either. The body is very good and it has a fairly floral character. The aroma is sweet with a lot of floral notes as well as salt crackers, rosemary and chicken meat present. Flavours are strong and mostly herbaceous, notably I can taste some fenugreek. The bitterness and astringency are present, but both in moderation. Aftertaste is long and peppery, with notes like bay leaf. The huigan is notably strong too. As far as longetivity goes, I finished the session after 14 infusions, but could’ve pushed it for a bit longer if I wanted. Overall, a good value for the price.
