From The Essence of Tea

A new find for us this year. We’d tasted some wild tea from this area last Autumn and asked a friend of ours from this area to look around and see what she could find for us this Spring.
This tea is strong, it has an underlying bitterness that’s a bit tamer than our Kunlu wild tea, but the energy is just as strong. For some this will be a bit too strong, but for those who like this style of tea it’s something special.

Ordered a sample just earlier today :)

Rasseru

it tastes like its got age on it already. Strongly deep bitter flavours

Sqt

Looking forward to it. I’ve mostly preferred older shengs so far and am just starting to appreciate the younger stuff.

tanluwils

This sounds like an fascinating tea. Are you still in Singapore?

Rasseru

Haven’t left yet! Going in a few weeks

Sqt

When are you going to Singapore, and how long will you be there? I might be able to introduce you to do a pu-head friend there.

Rasseru

in a few weeks – i’ll pm you

Bitter-sweet and very fruity ith a longlasting aftertaste like berrys and nice, decent Qi. Later on the bitterness turns down and becomes more sweet, like tart sour cheryys. You get really much for your money!

I have this one in my cart. Nice to see some notes before I get one.

Alexander

It’s really worth the money if you enjoy strong and bold puerhs with a wild profile. Not as hardcore as the Kunlu Bitter but more faceted flavors. Really enjoy this one.

mrmopar

Indeed I do. Kunlu, Bulang, Mang Fei are some of my favorites. I like to be smacked around by a tea.

tanluwils

I am considering this one, too. I did a blind buy on the 2016 kunlu bitter. It’s one of the most interesting teas in my collection.

Rasseru

omg. the bitterness on this one is pretty hardcore

Rasseru

Literally its making my throat numb and feels like its closing. ouf

Alexander

Woot? Ok, there’s some nice and strong bitterness, but not as strong as the Kunlu Wild … be prepared ;-)

Rasseru

Haha, well i didnt get as much fruit as the terre de ciel kunlu, it has been a bitter-fest all the way, but its a deep bitter, not tangy, hard to explain. I might try with lower temps next time

tanluwils

What the 2016 EOT kunlu has gotten by for it is body feel and qi. Of course there is wonderfully deep bitterness that rings in the mouth, but what it does to my body is remarkable. The qi (essence) travels to unexpected parts of the body and lingers there like a heat pack for hours.

Rasseru

i’m chasing the juicy huigan of the TDC Kunlu. I’m not that bothered about Qi unless its too stimulating and then i dont like it

Rasseru

@Alexander – I am not getting anywhere near the bitterness I got with the kunlu than I did with this one. I have knocked 5c off the temp to 85 in preparation but I cant taste much bitterness at all.

Maybe I hit this Jingdong too hot by accident, although I havent ever done that before. It was waaaay bitter

Alexander

@ranluwils: True, there is some very nice Qi with the Kunlu, like it was on the 2016er EoT Kunlu, too. Love it!
@Rasseru: Really? This is quite strange – I usually prepare Sheng this young the same way (8g to 80 ml and about 85-90 °C temperature) and the Kunlu has been always more bitter than the Jingdong. Let me know how the next sessions with those two work out!

Rasseru

yeah I will do. I’ll finish the samples properly, got another 2 sessions of each. Yeah i’m about the same specs. Maybe i’m used to the kunlu bitter as i’ve had a lot more of that type & my tongue is new to the jingdong. I dont know. interesting though, it was quite a noticeable difference. Also shows how different peoples tastes can be, especially with crazy sheng flavours

Rasseru

some of these tastes are sometimes way past the fringes of what normal people consider to be nice tasting, Its like the wild west of taste, haha

Alexander

yeah, like Puerh itself is “acquired taste”, so are those very bitter Shengs (more so since you have to “acquire after you’ve acquired”) ;-)
