From Yunnan Sourcing

Hai Lang celebrates his 16th year in the tea business. He started working with his parents supplying Yunnan grown medicinals, tea and foodstuffs to Taiwan, Malaysia and Hong Kong markets in the 90’s when he was just a teen.

16 years later he celebrates his greatest love with this powerful cha qi laden tea from spring 2012.

It’s an ancient arbor Bu Lang tea, but he prefers to not name the exact location. I think you’ll find this cake to be powerhouse. It delivers tons of cha qi, strong bitter mouthfeel with a super fast and lasting hui gan.

Already with some aged character!

Bouquet: Even for its young age and considering it was dry stored in Kunming there is already a certain nice aged smokey flavor to its profile. Starting with a subtle steaming aroma of grilled fish on a stick it further unfolds within aspects of leather, aged agarwood and tobacco. Already in its aroma the mouthwatering effect is juicing up your in

ner mouth section instantly!

Liquor: The Bu Lang character which I totally adore is noticeable from the first moment on especially within its unique perfectly composed bitter notes. You definitely need to take care about the steeping times because this buddy is getting bitter quite easily. But if you find the right balance of time the enjoyment is breath taking. With its creamy coating feel a whole atmosphere of many countless small sensations is overfloating your tasting buds starting with a very distinct flavor of natural medicinal herbal marshmallow (called Eibisch in our region) followed by tiny aspects of the starting scenting parts of subtle grilled fish on a stick, agarwood and leathery tobacco aspects but also new nuances of rose candies or rose frankincense. Within its taste there is a certain Green profile to it which reminds me of a scenery in the middle of a rainforest. You can taste those green leaves, their buds and twigs, those fine raindrops dripping from some of the larger leaves. There is also a nice layer of fruity aspects to it like common for Sheng pear and grape skin with a little pulp to it. Even after the last sip is done the mouthwatering sensation starts immediately and leaves you longing for another infusion. Within this aftertaste there is also a certain nutty development noticeable.
