From The Essence of Tea

From the same trees as we made tea from in 2018, this is from a strain of wild trees, known as “Bitter Wild”. The trees are huge, with trunks that shoot up to the forest canopy. They’re easily hundreds of years old & have grown wild in this protected forest.

The flavour is fresh, with medium thickness and nice aroma. There is a bitterness that is characteristic of this type of wild tea that emerges in later steeps, though this year seems to be more controllable than when we pressed it before. There is a strong, relaxing energy to the tea – one of the main reasons many people seek out this type of tea.

I would say, this isn’t a tea for beginners – the bitter note is one aspect that some people really seek out and love, but also that some people do not find attractive. We decided to buy and press this tea again for those in the first group :)

Like Slumbering Dragon from CLT? My guess is that this is basically the same tea at 1/3 the price. Bitter gaogan yesheng from Kunlu Shan? Check. Medium light body with intense but smooth bitterness with notes of citrus peel and blueberries? Yep. Does it have the same spacy but energizing wi? OMG I have to be at work in a half hour. Do I intend to try to trade my remaining cakes of SlumberIng Dragon? …if anyone is still interested in that tea. Bottom line, if you like Slumbering Dragon buy this tea. 3 years ago when I was new to sheng I was smitten with it and bought a lot of it. Now I mainly drink it when I’m fighting a cold…
