Andrew said he is finding it hard to describe why he likes this, me too, but i’ll try.

Ok, so this one isn’t for those like it tame. It starts off bitter. I mean, not normal bitter or strong, for that matter.. But its a bitter tea. Tongue is dancing, mouth has puckered. dried. I’m actually refraining from saying what I think it tastes like because I know Andrew really likes this and i’ve had tea spoilt when someone added another angle of it and I couldn’t unthink the taste easily.

so, its a bitter first steep.

And bitter second steep.

And third, you get the idea. But in-between these I start taste fruit. Then a wave of warmth comes over me, and as I carry on it changes into this wondrous medley of grapes, strawberries, passion fruits, all made into jam in my head.

Later more steamed stuff/fruit, more bitter leaf taste, more waves of warmth. Its got a lovely qi to it. Oh my, that huigan makes me close my eyes.

Its amazing, I like it a lot – for serious pu’er heads due to the profile though. – , for example I would love to give this to my girlfriend but she would probably not appreciate it yet. I even struggle with the bitter taste a bit, but then, some alien fruit taste enters my head & Its all better again. Its also dependent on what you’ve eaten before (or lack thereof) – do it on an empty stomach or fruit or something, imho of course.

not garlic. Never garlic

Flavors: Bitter, Passion Fruits, Strawberry, White Grapes

I also think often adding flavor notes to it makes it difficult to “unthink the taste” for many sheng pu’er. And yes, garlic will make it difficult to taste the tea.

How does this one compare to other Kunlus like Essence of Tea Kunlu Bitter Wild or Crimson Lotus Tea Slumbering Dragon, which are super bitter (and that’s what I love about them)?

Never tried either of them, but have the ancient kunlu wild on the way from eot. Along with two other wild teas, the Jingdong and Wuliang.

This is super bitter with the juiciest gorgeous huigan. It’s like bitter grapes then grape gummy candy.

Really good stuff

Alexander

Thanks, inthis case I have to try this one too – love those super bitter ones :)
BTW: The two others you orderd are good choices too, despite beeing not so bitter. The Jingdong is a really fruity one (love it!) and the Wuling is a much more mellow and calmer wild Sheng.

unfortunately its out of stock! Try emailing them they might have some left or able to get it again. Its so good

Here comes ‘the’ review.
So I found a goldmine and kept it to myself for a bit, but here’s a new shop for many of you. I’ve been talking with the owners while in Yunnan which has been sweet. Highly recommend their blog: https://www.the-puer.com/en/blog.html

So here we go… I bought ALL of this tea, sorry folks. Slumbering Dragon sold out from CLT and I needed a replacement and I found it.

Such a wonderful pickled fruit with a nice sour/sweet taste that keeps me coming back for more and more. I cannot find anything wrong with this tea other than it’s sold out and I don’t have all that much :/

If you decide to put through an order I suggest a little https://www.the-puer.com/en/shop/collectors/cur-003-jingmai-wulong-2016-368.html
Very unique and one of my daily drinkers at work.
p.s. they have Naka too :p

Cat is out of the bag now…..

Liquid Proust

Yes it is! It was going to happen at one point… I drank some of this tonight and was not able to stand : )

Not sure if it was me or the tea, but it worked.

mrmopar

Maybe just the tea. I went ahead and pulled my trigger too.

Okay, so now I’m hanging out on this website, checking out their black tea collection…

How are you guys getting it shipped? I can’t find the USA listed in the drop-downs.

HaChaChaCha

Ah, finally found it – États-Unis.

I actually have some of this but haven’t gotten around to trying it. I’ve bought a few teas from TDC and all good so far. One of the few “local” vendors I get to enjoy.
