From Bitterleaf Teas

A perennial favourite with both our customers and ourselves, this tea carries a deep fragrance and floral flavour. There is also some gentle, but pleasant, bitterness and plenty of sweetness in the throat, making this an exceptionally balanced tea.

Disclaimer: If you’re expecting plum or stone fruit notes based on the name, those may be slightly detectable at this stage, but will become increasingly obvious as the years go on. 5 or more years of patient storage will be rewarded.

The material for this tea comes from ~40yr “fangyang” (放养/left to grow) trees that are not treated with pesticides, fertilizer or any other intervention outside of picking. This is hands down our preferred type of material as it often lends a richer flavour and texture, but at a more affordable level than gushu or old trees.

Picking period: Pre-April 6

Gongfu!

Had this one last night with my Arbee Ceramics pot – I still can’t get over how gorgeous this pot is and how smoothly it pours! The sheng was unsurprisingly lovely – so far I’ve enjoyed all of the Plum Beauty variants. Fragrant as soon as the water hits the leaves, this starts sweeter and syrupy with floral stonefruit notes (white peach, magnolia, a hint of jasmine) moving into a bit of baby bitterness and greener edge on the finish with great huigan!

I feel like the first photo really well captures the level of chaos and clutter on my desk – I thrive on it though, it’s like this little alcove where I’ve strategically “domed” this around it and so when my tray is nestled in there it feels very beautiful to me.
