From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a unique tea to be sure. It’s made from Wild Tree Purple varietal tea (ye sheng cha) growing in Jinggu county. The tea grows wild and is only harvested in March. The tea was processed using the same technique used for Yue Guang Bai, the tea wilts briefly before being put into a long wind tunnel tube, where the action of air movement gradually halts the oxidation of the tea.

The taste is something unique too. There is alot of complexity, with notes of fruit, flower, sugarcane, and a kind of bitterness that fades quickly. With even a few months of age the bitterness will transform into fruit sweetness with a long lasting after-taste. The tea soup is yellow, and is thick and soupy.

Spring April 2019 Harvest

Hong Ni Tang Village mountainous area in Jing Gu County of Simao

Was lucky to encounter this in the wild in Brooklyn at a tea shop with zero preconceived notions. I’m sort of out of the honeymoon phase with this tea at this point and feel interested to see how it will develop. But it’s very easy to fall head over heels for this unusual bundle of sensory wealth for a time. If you look up reviews from previous years, you’ll see that it is pointless to try and describe all the things it manages to be.

song pairing: Remember – Kevin Oh

Edit1: Brewing it grandpa in a LVZHU travel buddy clone worked out all right. The bottle got very hot so it needed a long thick sock. I’m still not really sold emotionally on the hot water in plastic idea but it tasted fine.

Edit 2: Mixing it cold w/ coconut water at a 1:1 ratio was delicious.
