From Yunnan Sourcing

Big Snow Mountain (大雪山) is one of two Big Snow mountains in Lincang prefecture. One is in Mengku county and the other is in Yong De county. Our material is entirely First Flush of Spring 2010 material from Yong De’s Big Snow Mountain. The environment from which this tea comes from is a natural un-managed tea garden filled with trees and tea bushes between 60 and 150 years old at an altitude of about 1800 meters on the south-western slope the mountain.

The tea itself is full of intense cha qi and is somewhat bitter and astringent. The mouth-feel is strong and fills and stimulates the mouth long after it has been drunk. There is a slight flower aroma that will become more obvious with aging. This is a tea to be aged for sure, with the needed strong and intense character to become a well-rounded and textured tea with each step of aging.

Stone-Pressed in November 2014, 400 grams per cake!
Bamboo leaf wrapped tong of 7 cakes

I had this tea a few days ago and as I was drinking it, I was wondering what on earth made me choose a sample of this tea?

I think the first infusion was the best. It was light and just a bit fruity but leaves had barely opened up. Second infusion was strong, more fruit but bitter. Infusion 3 and on, it got so bitter , it puckered my lips. Bitter, bitter, bitter. So what did make me choose this tea? I had to go on the YS website to read about the tea. Surely there must have been something about it that made me want to try a sample. The description says it has an intense cha qi and is somewhat bitter and astringent. I tried lowering the temperature to cut down on the bitterness so I raised the temperature. That seemed to help a little bit but this tea was just too bitter to drink. Crikey, I still can’t figure out why I bought it.
