From Bitterleaf Teas

One of our favourite named mountains, Kunlu is most well-known for its wild (and wild-ish) old tree teas. Although this tea uses more modest arbour material, it manages to do a fine job keeping up with the big trees. There is a full flavour and texture, along with a deceptive strength that will sneak up on you.

This tea starts out as a doe-eyed vegetal and mineral-sweet flavour, grazing in your mouth, but develops into a significantly thicker and richer flavour with each brew. As the flavour coats the mouth and follows you around, this tea will leave you wondering why it’s not double the price.

This tea could easily be filed under the “buy one for now, one for storage” category, if not a tong.

Picking period: Pre-April 9

I nearly bought a sample of this tea from BLT myself, so I’m glad I could try it anyway courtesy of Roswell Strange. It reminds me of the Jiu Tai Po tea from Yunnan Sourcing which I like a lot – mainly by virtue of its thick texture and bitter, grainy taste profile.

The aroma reminds me of hazelnuts and sunflowers. The taste is quite pungent. It is floral with mild fruitiness. The grainy aspect gives it an ale-like vibe. There is a long-lasting sweet, mineral aftertaste too. The liquor is full bodied with a lively syrupy and velvety mouthfeel.
