From Bitterleaf Teas

Using the same left-to-grow material as our annual Year of the Dragon Yiwu raw puer, this tea exhibits a floral fragrance over top of a sugary sweetness. As with the other teas from this land, this year’s production leans towards the sweet side of things a little more.

Similar to its puer counterpart, this tea demonstrates the difference a good environment and well tended (or rather untended) land can make in terms of the final product.

Pick up both the raw puer and white tea versions in order to compare the same material with different processing.

Gongfu!

My Spring tea order from Bitterleaf arrived this week, so I’m steeping up a session of the 2024 Red Dragon Yiwu Shaihong black tea in my Pokémon gaiwan. I know I should wait for these cakes to have a moment to settle following their trip across the globe, but I couldn’t resist breaking into at least one of them right away – new Spring teas always get me so hyped.

…and this tea is incredible!! Thick and syrupy right off the bat with pungently sweet notes of waxy red fruits and almonds extract with undertones of maple, walnut, molasses, and golden raisins. Malty in its overtones, but floral and heady in the finish. I feel heavily invested already in the complexity and flavour impact of this black tea. I mean, just wow. It’s going to be very, very hard not to immediately dive into the white tea and sheng pu’erh cakes made with this material. Very hard.
