From white2tea

The 2019 Dangerfield was blended with an intention of being a poor man’s Naka. The tea is extremely fragrant and smooth with an astonishing huigan [lingering sweetness]. The complex aroma and sweetness shift from steep to steep. This is a blend that punches far above its weight. An excellent value and a great candidate for both veteran Puer drinkers and people who want to take the plunge into the raw Puer ocean.

Each cake is 200 grams.

The tea at the moment is 2 years old. The wet leaves smell like fruits, leather, light smoke, sour plums. Not very intense but I find it delicious.

1
Liquor: stewed vegetables, flowers. Medium thin body. Very delicate aftertaste. Heartbeat accelerates, something slows down and makes my head heavy.

2
Aroma: fruity/floral/dark chocolate. Now I’m thinking of black tea. The liquor is still thin, I get some chocolate feeling, spiciness and cooling/tingling aftertaste. My heart goes fast. My head feels pressurized. The rest of my body feels normal.

3
Black tea feeling, oxidation. Fruity-chocolate. Vegetal. Now the liquor is medium thick, sweeter and more satysfing. Leaves a butter sensation on the lips. Lingering dark chocolate aftertaste.

4 5
Stewed vegetables/chocolate/fruits/malt. Liquor has a pleasant astringency. Heartbeat is back to normal.

6
lighter, a beginning of bitterness.

After this I stopped taking notes. It was less interesting.
Generally speaking this tea doesn’t have the intensity of other more high end teas, it’s a more-than-nice daily drinker.

I found it to be very stimulating, maybe too much. Other people may get different effects. Also I guess it depends on the day, the mood, etc.

Edit: I tried this tea again with a stronger leaf/water ratio and it was a completely different experience. Flavours and huigan were much more intense and interesting.

Balanced astringency and light sweetness, easy drinking. Some stone fruit notes.

I got a coin of this with my W2T order. I noted that it was bitter, astringent, punchy, and had a hint of pear notes. The leaf was very choppy, but I managed to pull a full leaf from the pile. It opened up nicely, for how small the coin was from the start. I got about 8-9 steeps in before moving on to the next session.

Gongfu!

Last night’s evening session. I know this puer has a of a loyal following, but if I’m being honest it’s not a personal favourite. Generally speaking, I find the vegetal bite and astringency a bit too unpredictable and, though the session comes with a warm and fuzzy tea drunk “glow” I have to say that I value taste above texture and body feel. With that said, I hit a bit of a sweet spot with this session where I got four steeps in a row with the perfect ratio of astringency, bitterness, and jammy stonefruit notes with a finish of leather. Very apricot forward. Still had those cooked green/vegetal notes that aren’t typically my thing, but I enjoyed myself more than expected with this session!
