From Bitterleaf Teas

Our recent addition to the Bitterleaf “weird” collection is not actually tea, but rather a parasitic plant that uses the tea trees of Jing Mai as its source of power. Bearing resemblance to the crustacean of the same name, Crab Legs are treasured in traditional Chinese medicine, but also make for an enjoyable drink all on their own.

Brewing crab legs is as easy as boiling 2-4 grams in a large kettle for several minutes, and then adding more water to re-brew as you go. They produce a tangy-sweet soup with an herbal quality. Additionally, there is quite a nice huigan that lasts in the throat.

Had this Grandpa style on Monday…

Y’know when people saying something like “Oh, this just tastes like tea” as if all tea tastes the same!? That drives me crazy, and yet I do simultaneously kind of feel like I know exactly what they’re talking about. The sort of generic taste of maybe something like a Red Rose Orange Pekoe/English Breakfast type generic grocery store bagged thing.

Well, I bring it up because I feel like I had the same kind of moment when drinking this but my frustrating/vague summary was more in the vein of “Oh, this just tastes like herbal tea”. I’m sure if I was more consciously drinking the tea, I’d have at least some flavour breakdown but since it was just something I was slurping while working I had the generic kind of flavour impression…
