This is from a random sample order I made a puerhshop a few months back. They’re nice for instant gratification pu, as their shipping time is 2 days or less to my house. I ordered this solely because it was Bulang. The dry leaf had a bit of a woody or piney aroma to it – after a rinse, it was woody cinnamon and sage.

The first steep was light, with a bit of pine sweetness. It left me fully unprepared for the second steep, which was almost overwhelmingly cinnamon. It was quite surprising – cinnamon bark with a nice sweet finish. Slightly mouth-numbing. I think it’s the most heavily cinnamon tasting tea I’ve ever had.

By the next steep, the cinnamon had faded, but was still quite present. That along with an increased sweet finish, made this tea taste uncannily like apple pie. That’s really what I got for most of the rest of the session. It got a little bit drying on the finish around steep six or so as well. This tea didn’t have much of any of the bitterness which Bulang teas are often known for. Just apple pie. The mouth feeling was decently thick, but entirely unremarkable.

I really wanted to try some Bulang so I decided to place a small order with puershop to pick up a few samples to try. They arrived this afternoon and I randomly chose this one as my first. One thing I noticed was that all of the samples had such pretty looking leaves. Long and twisty with some fuzzy tips. The kind that I love watching grow in my glass teapot.

Steeped about 5.5g in 120mL. Overall quite nice. The first two steeps give the lightest bit of stone fruit at the end of the sip, mainly tasting of generic vegetal sheng flavor, with a touch of bitterness. Much less than I’d expect from a 2013 though. Generally I steep my sheng with boiling water, but for the next steeps I let it cool off a bit and was rewarded with a much smoother tea. Definitely the way to go with this one.

The qi is surprisingly nice. Earlier I actually thought I was lightheaded from not eating but… no. I’ve eaten since then and after drinking another steep I’ve gotten the same feeling. Interesting.
Great price as well. It’s not the tastiest tea I’ve ever had. But it’s an easy one to sip, and considering the price and lovely qi I’ll definitely consider a full cake of this somewhere down the line.
