From Yunnan Sourcing

Wa Long village is not far from Man Zhuan village in the Yi Wu mountain area. It’s a remote village and the tea we sourced from there is in the mountains about 1.5 hours by 4WD from Wa Long village. A remote natural tea garden on steep mountainside with just a few hundred trees but all more than 100 years old. Many as old as 400 years old. All large leaf varietal. The tea was picked and processed all in early April. Tea from Wa Long is distinctive, with strong thick taste, some bitterness and very long stout leaves and stems. Entire output of Wa Long village area teas for 1st flush is just 400 kilograms, we were able to get a portion of that.

Pressed with 30kg stone presses by traditional method!

Don’t remember much about this session, but I took notes.

I drank the rinse due to having nowhere to toss rinse water, but it didn’t have much taste to it. Once wet, the leaves had a fruity, slightly smoky aroma, and in the first proper steep the liquor a light gold color. Fruitiness began to emerge a couple of steeps in, with a fruity aroma clinging to the cup and a creamy aftertaste lingering in the mouth.

All in all, I enjoyed this one and I think it’s worth a try, but it didn’t engage me enough to consider purchasing more.

I’m not one for Autumn tea, but I found this sample and decided to give it a go. The leaf is dark green and loosely compressed with very sweet scents of winter honey, apricot, and candy with soft floral snap dragon quality. I warmed up my gaiwan and placed a bit inside. The scent opens into roasted marshmallow, caramel, crème, and cool whip. This was such a treat. I washed the little dessert leaves and prepared for brewing. The taste is sweet and with a creamy thickness. A warm vanilla pops up along with some vegetal tones. The huigan is thick and dripping. The aftertaste is like honey nut cheerios. The second steeping brought a cooling sensation that lingered in the back of the throat. On an exhale I’m greeted with stonefruit and peaches. However, the brew suddenly becomes extremely bitter and “rusted”. The astringency grew tremendously, and it dominated the sweet silky tones. The dessert tones and mild floral qualities vanished, and they did not appear again. The qi was moderate with a nice prickling of the neck. The session ended with a decent head buzz and a confusing search for the succulent sweetness.
