From Bitterleaf Teas

Made from Wuliang shan material that is typically used for puer, this baimudan grade white tea is a perfect example of how unique Yunnan white teas can be.

This tea has a crisp, clear fragrance up front and a long lasting sweetness in the mouth and throat. The flavour plays a delicate balancing act between floral and fruity. And while we normally stray away from commenting on specific notes, this tea has enough of an apple cider note that we feel it’s worth mentioning.

This tea was one of the more surprising and satisfying finds for 2020, performing like a tea 2-3x the price.

For fans of our annual White Crow Shoumei, we strongly recommend this tea as a companion cake, as together they highlight the differences the leaf grade can make in terms of delicateness, texture and flavour.

Even though it is from Yunnan, this is a fairly sstandard Bai Mu Dan in its profile. The taste is savoury with a mild bitterness and flavours of vanilla and custard. The aftertaste is sweet and floral. There is also a lasting woody fragrance to it.

WandaVision Binge Watch – Ep 4

On a pairing front I have to say that the name of this tea really says it all. It was one of those obvious “slaps you in the face” kind of teas that you go “OH! Obviously this is what should go with this episode” and so it’s what I did. The cold open of the episode immediately validated that feeling for me.

On a taste level, it was probably good that I switched to something more delicate and calming after several pretty richly flavourful teas. I loved the silky smooth notes of clotted cream, cucumber pulp, and timothy hay. There was also this quality that I liked that (and this is gonna sound weird) I can only best describe as the smell of what you make your own paper. I don’t know if anyone else has ever done that before, but you basically make your own weird goopy paper pulp and spread it very thin then use pressure to make it stay together as a sheet. There’s a distinct aroma to that process, and this taste like it – but in a good and nostalgic way.

This is also the episode where alllllllll the caffeine I had been consuming really started to catch up with me and by the end of the episode I felt like I was buzzing/vibrating from a combo of adrenaline/excitement from the plot developments mixed with so much caffeine…
