With some minor tweaks for 2021, it’s back: A beautiful marriage of Bangdong black tea and Bulang shou puer.

This experimental blend represents the best of both worlds. Bangdong black tea provides an immediate sweetness and enticing fragrance up front. Meanwhile the Bulang shou puer holds things down in terms of mouthfeel and texture, but without any noticeable earthiness or interference in terms of fragrance.

The overall experience is a balanced and highly enjoyable one, as again, we ask ourselves how we didn’t think of this earlier.

After storing the 2020 version for one year, we were also pleasantly surprised at how this tea developed with one year of storage. While this is an excellent tea for drinking now, it can also develop and mellow out with time in storage.

Couldn’t decide if I wanted a black tea or some shou this afternoon, so I’ve split the difference with this session! Like the 2020 version of this tea, this blended cake of hong cha and ripe puer is pretty unique! With the previous year’s pressing I’ve generally found the tasting notes and qi of the pu’erh to be most prominent, but with this tea session I’m sort of finding the reverse to be true. Though there’s a clean earthy undertone throughout and some early infusions have a heavy molasses taste as well, this blend eventually brightens up into a more sweet and fruity profile tinged with jammy notes of pomegranate and red berries, with some syrupy raisin and date flavours in the finish!
