From The Essence of Tea

We bought some wild tea from this village last year, but their ancient cultivated trees had already been booked by another buyer. This year though, we were more prepared & happy to be able to buy this tea.
The trees are very old and growing naturally. The environment is also good and quite remote.
This tea is strong and powerful. There’s a healthy bitterness, thickness and good qi. To criticise it, there’s some slight astringency in later steeps, but I’d expect this to smooth and mellow with time. This is a very nice ancient tree tea from an area that still has reasonable prices and should perform well in the long run.

I got this as a free sample with my order and was quite surprised how much punch it had. The flavor has a perfect level of strength, which is a nice contrast to all the sweet light 2017s right now. The notes are daisy, stone fruits, buttered green beans, and slight char. It gets sharper in flavor each infusion, and also builds up some astringency, but a drinkable dryness. The energy of this tea hits after the session.

You tried the Jingdong yet?

Oolong Owl

I sadly didn’t get that one. I just have Secret Forest left to try for puer.

mrmopar

I still have some of the Secret Forest too. Message me your address I will pack you some Jingdong. Be warned potent like Lao Man’E if steeped too long.

Alexander

Haha, yeah Jingdong is super awesome! :-)

At first very spicy and nutty, which turns to a slightly bitter floral note. Somewhat astringent and very fresh.
