From Bitterleaf Teas

Originally developed as an experiment, this tea has now become a yearly staple in our lineup and one that we look forward to each year. With slight adjustments in tea selection and formula from one pressing to another, there are always new nuances and characteristics to discover.

This year’s blend employs the smooth and rich character of Menghai shou puer with the fragrance and sweet qualities of traditionally processed Fengqing black tea. Overall this tea offers a nice salivating quality, with slight notes of spice.

While our 2022 pressing displayed more of the ripe puer’s character after a few infusions, this tea gives a little more equal treatment to both teas right out of the gate. With that said, our experience with previous pressings has shown that the flavours can be expected to develop and meld over time, exchanging dominance during storage.

At a price that fits any budget, this tea is also a great candidate for picking up a tong of, as it performs well both for drinking now and for longer term storage.

This is a very pleasant tea for snowy days like today, including its relaxing cha qi. Its character borrows clearly from the two ingredients that make up the blend, but I find that they act in unison to a large degree.

Dry leaves smell sweet and earthy with notes of malt, fireplace, nuts and sauerkraut. The wet leaf aroma is quite different, I can detect cherry, chocolate, incense, and marine notes.

The liquor is full bodied with decent thickness. Its flavour ranges from earthy and sweet to more woody, herbaceous and savoury. There are also hints of sour taste. Specifically, it reminds me of cacao beans, moss, and beetroot besides some of the notes mentioned before.

Gongfu 4gr in 60ml gaiwan. 95°. Rinse 10s then 5s first infusion +5 fot the next ones.

All’olfatto molto interessante, profumo di liquirizia e terra, al sapore invece malto, terra, liquirizia. Mi sarei aspettato una dolcezza maggiore.

Dopo 4-5 infusioni ricorda moltissimo il tostato di un hojicha sia al sapore che all’olfatto.

Non mi ha convinto tantissimo, devo riprovarlo magari abbassando un po’ la temperatura verso i 90°
