From Yunnan Sourcing

Teng Tiao village (Rattan village) is located in Jing Gu county of Simao. The leaves used for our production come from the oldest stand of trees in the area (150-300 years old). The tea was picked in first week of October during the dry cool sunny weather that follows the end of the monsoon season in southern Yunnan.

This is a unique tea because the cha qi is clean and strong but not overpowering. There is a nice grass and floral aroma in the first sips and very noticeable cooling sensation in the mouth and throat followed by a slight mouth-watering feeling from the tongue. The successive infusions become stronger and then even out. The leaves and stems are very burly and attest to their old tree origins.

400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)

This is the first tea that I sampled as part of this evening’s tea and movies session. I chose it because it promised to match the early part of the film in texture and mood. I was right. Oddly enough, this is one of the very few teas where the description matches my experience of it. The cha qi is gentle. The leaves are large and mainly whole. The aroma and taste is of a heavily pollen-laden garden on a warm summer evening, floral and slightly grassy. The aftertaste brings with it a light cooling sensation and a slight salivation. I’m half a dozen steeps in and it is still going strong. I only had a sample to try but I shall certainly add it to my wish list now. It’s really good to drink even now. No idea how it will age though.

Indeed, and currently drinking a 1990s Hong Kong style sheng puerh for the grand finale of the Princess Bride. :)

I think it’s worth it. I’ve noticed that the YS 2014 teas that I have tried seem to carry this heady, warm pollen feel to them.

Kirkoneill1988

pollen feel? i dont really understand this feeling too well :/

Roughage

Hmm, it’s the feeling of walking in a garden on a warm evening with lots of heavily scented flowers around, where you can practically taste the aroma of the flowers. Does that make sense? At its core it’s a heavy, thick floral taste but I associate it with tropical gardens that I have been in.

hmm, i’ve never been in a tropical garden before but i understand you now
