From Yunnan Sourcing

Autumn harvested tea from pure assamica tea trees growing in Guang Bie area of Bu Lang Shan in Menghai county of Xishuangbanna.

Bu Lang Mountain teas are well know for producing world-class ripe and raw pu-erh teas because they are strong and bitter with a sweet finish. The idea of making black tea from pure assamica is long-standing tradition. It was probably originally done for teas that wilted too heavily to be processed into pu-erh mao cha, so were allowed to wilt longer and then were processed into black tea.

Our Bu Lang Black Tea is a joy to drink. Lively and deep it will go many infusions without getting boring or flat. With some age it will continue to develop complexity for several years!

Being a fan of Bulang puerh, I figured this would be a good black tea for me to try out; I was right. This one seemed to have a bit more body and depth of flavor than most hong that I drink. Slight bitterness if pushed, but mostly malty and sweet flavors – a bit of caramel and some kind of dried fruit, maybe raisins. I wonder how much my impression was colored by the word “Bulang” in the name, as I equate that with a more bold and burly style of puerh.

This was definitely a good black tea, but I likely won’t buy more of it – just because black tea isn’t something I drink much of generally.

A hong cha from Bu Lang? How could I say no?

The dry leaves are big, twisty, and beautiful with a good number of golden buds. Some of them barely fit into my pot. Dry aroma of malt and raisins with a floral touch.

Brews a medium orange, this is a fairly mild black tea. Flavors of malt, mineral water, and raisins with a light, almost jasmine floral quality. Mild caramel sweetness with a medium-light body. Lasted quite a few infusions.

This is a pretty nice lighter bodied black, especially if you like some floral notes to your black tea. Not at all bitter or intense like you might expect a Bu Lang tea to be.
