From Wuyi Origin

Harvest date: 2020 ,April 25th

Location :feng shuiguang(风水光)

Cultivar :wuyi qizhong

Fengshui guang in Wuyishan is the junction of Fujian Province and Jiangxi Province. In ancient Wuyishan tea horse road, Fengshui guang is also a very important post. The altitude is about 1000 meters, surrounded by clouds all the year round. Because most of the farmers here don’t have a fixed tea garden. Many tea trees grew naturally on the ridge of their own fields before. There is no tea garden. Every year is a little bit of output, so they mainly sell tea leaves. Most of the families have no processing machinery and equipment. This year, I bought some green leaves from my classmate Lin Lang’s family and then processed them. Most of the tea trees are about 80 years old, but because of the drought, the strip of tea is small, but the smell of dry tea can have a very obvious wooden taste. The tea soup is very clear, sticky and sweet. Although they are all the same varieties, they are different from tongmuguan (the origin of Wuyishan black tea) due to the difference of regional environment.But it’s a very interesting high mountain black tea

A simple (unsmoked) lapsang souchong, done well.

This lapsang doesn’t feature a lot of fancy fruity or floral accents, but instead focuses entirely on that characteristic base lapsang souchong flavor.
Taste is strong but balanced. The bitterness in particular is very pleasant, balanced by subtle sweet notes and a hint of refreshing citrus and cardamom on top. Earlier steeps are dark and comfortable with notes of hay and beans, later steeps get lighter and show a bit of plum.
Some astringency is always present but it stays in the background.

I really enjoyed this one gong fu style. The leaves pack a punch, in one session I did 14 steeps and could’ve gotten a few more out of it. Western style steeping tends to make a more boring, one note brew in my experience, so it doesn’t seem like very versatile tea.

The price is very fair I think, one of the cheaper teas on WuyiOrigin. If you like lapsang souchong, I would recommend it.
