From White2Tea

This tea was produced in autumn of 2015 with 2014 Puer material using a traditional technique for bamboo Puer pressing. The Big Leaf Bamboo is named for the Huanpian [larger, older Puer leaves] that were used in its making. The tea starts with a bitter character and becomes sweeter as the session progresses, the tea flavors meld with the bamboo throughout. The tea can also be boiled for a heavy syrupy drink, or used in cooking rice to impart a tea/bamboo flavor. Drink now or aged as desired.

Each piece of bamboo contains roughly 350 grams of tea, and they come in all shapes and sizes.

Still extremely bitter in the early steeps (have to throw the first few as they are just way too much). Develops a very nice sweetness and hints of bamboo in the later steeps, as well as when grandpa’d. Too strong to drink now but hopefully will calm down with time and turn into something very nice.

This is an interesting tea in that the production mirrors the way a local delicacy is made. Lemang is glutinous rice steamed in a hollow bamboo stick.

On opening the bag, this tea has a nice smell. The rinse especially has a very nice, spicy smell that I oddly associate with the cows I come across in palm oil estates (that smell nothing like farm-kept cattle).

Unfortunately, this scent doesn’t translate to taste or flavour and I found the tea a bit bland. Maybe I should leaf up a bit heavier though I used a fair amount of leaf (didn’t weigh as usual). I can relate to the sweet aftertaste mentioned in another review but it’s a strong and heavy body that I’m after.

I’m so happy Mr Twodiggity made this tea. I’ve been looking for a nice huangpian to enjoy as a nightcap ever since I tried the huangpian in Basics. I used 4 grams in a 95ml gaiwan which was plenty for me. No puer needle nescessary, this tea breaks up easily in your fingers like… Other plants that break up easily in your fingers.

It may be because this tea is more choppy than the huangpian in Basics, but I notice more sweetness, and more bitterness right off the bat. I also get a very nice lasting floral/fruity/sweetness that continues for a good half hour after each cup. I did not know huigan like this was possible in huangpian.

It has a pungent factory like tongue puckering punch (in a good way) also probably from the consistency of the leaves. As I continue drinking this I’m just blown away by how sweet it is. Once again so pleasantly surprised that a tea at this price level, and caffeine level, could be this good. I’m an insomniac so this is a godsend
