From Bitterleaf Teas

If you’re not drinking something that makes you happy, then you’re not drinking the right tea. This Yunnan yellow tea is likely a step in the right direction though.

Made from fangyang (left to grow) material that is typically used for puer, this tea is sweet and smooth up front. There’s a noticeable pine and mossy fragrance that is subdued at first, but slowly takes over the mouth and throat, lingering well after you’ve finished a sip.

We highly recommend this tea for anyone new to the less-common yellow teas, as well as those in search of a long-lasting and enduring yellow tea – in other words, we recommend it for everyone (that includes you).

$0.20/gram

Gongfu!

My experience with yellow teas thus far has been that they typically range from ok to really good and they’re often pretty nutty – peanut/hazelnut are consistent notes for me in particular. The dry leaf of this one smells a little nutty, but also strongly of timothy hay so I wasn’t sure exactly where it would go…

I steeped maybe five or six infusions, which was about as long enough of a session as I wanted. The tea was a little astringent, and tasted like freshly mowed grass and dandelions on a sweltering summer day – as well as a little bit like more fresh/greener hay. I don’t mind hay notes in tea, but grass (and especially “lawn clipping” grass notes) are not a flavour I gravitate towards, and I was sad this wasn’t nuttier. However, maybe because of the current world situation and the fact it was an especially cold, grey and drizzly day I actually really responded quite well to those more “summer vibe” type grassy notes…

I’d be curious where I land in the future though during retastes…

A total bop.

(Also, hits just a little different after watching Tiger King…)

derk

That song reminds me of the entirety of my final 3 years in San Francisco.
