From Farmerleaf

Very deep Cha Qi experience, relaxing tea with subtle characteristics, recommended for experienced puerh tea drinkers who like yiwu tea.

This tea is a blend of six massive trees harvested in the North of little Jinggu area. The mountain is called Ba Da Ye, not far from the slightly more town of Da Sun Shan. It was sourced by Luo Kai Yin and processed in his factory.

Even though large trees does not always mean good tea, there is a typical characteristic that makes big tea trees enjoyable. The body feel in this tea is amazing. As the session goes, you can feel the tea in your stomach and start sweating due to a comfortable warming of the body. This is something not everyone has the chance to experience, but people sensitive to ‘Cha Qi’ are really into this kind of teas.

The taste is subdued. No fancy fragrance, aggressive bitterness or astringency. Decent thickness, but interestingly, not so much sweetness. The tea soup feels somewhat empty in the mouth, in a good way. It’s not like drinking water, nor like sipping oil, but somewhere in between. You’ll start feeling the tea after you swallow it.

It’s possible puerh tea beginners will miss the core quality of this tea. This is the kind of tea experienced drinkers are looking for, this is very Eastern Yiwu-like. Hard to describe, but you always come back to it.

This is a high quality tea and was either not cheap, or was a great value if so. Impossible to know as it is sold out on their website. Glad I got a free sample anyways :).

This is a blend of leaves from six large trees from the mountain Ba Da Ye just north of Little Jinggu. The man who sourced and processed the tea is Luo Kai Yin.

Unlike their 2022 Gulan from yesterday, this one had arms wide open from the start. William’s description on the website is spot on. Only a twinkle of bitterness with no astringency. Mouthfeel is medium-thick. Mild sweetness. Hou yun is long and vaporous like a cloud in your throat. Flavor is mild, but incredibly pleasant, soothing, and most noticeable in the aftertaste. Longevity is 16+ infusions.

Wish they still had cakes left…
