From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a 2016 spring wild harvested Tian Jian tea from Wang Xi village area in Anhua county. Wild grown tea (荒山茶) was picked and processed carefully using kill-green (frying), rolling, fermenting, and drying and then steamed and packed into these little hand-made baskets.

This is a slightly smoky, peaty, molasses type Tian Jian with some slight astringent semi-aged raw pu-erh-like character as well. It’s very sweet and full-bodied as well. Very rich and complex.

Sipdown (1458)!

Finished off this sample that was gifted to me by Togo by bowl brewing over the course of the afternoon – I was amazing by how much the overall taste reminded me of really good barbeque sauce. Nice and deep with a mixture of woody and smoky notes, a bit like an Applewood Smoked BBQ sauce, with notes of brown sugar and molasses and just a bit of a nice tangy quality too. I wish the mouthfeel had been thicker to better suit the heavy rich flavour, but overall this was something I would easily see myself gravitating towards and wanting to purchase in a larger quantity. So yummy!

What a lovely example of a Tian Jian this is! It’s a full bodied one with great complexity and a balanced profile. Additionally, it also brings about a very nice calming energy and warms the body.

The aroma gives a vibe of wood smoked bacon, barnyard / stables, bog, straw, rosemary, cactus with some sweet fruity hints. Taste is immediately quite sweet, woody and metallic with a mild vegetal bite. There is a nice tartness that complements the bassy notes. Some flavours of mint, dry earth, wheat, orange zest, and honey can be detected. The aftertaste is a touch drying and mineral with a throat warming sensation and a long-lasting sweetness. Mouthfeel is very smooth and quite buttery.

All across the board, I am very much enjoying this tea and can recommend it to anyone looking for more hei cha exploration!
