From Bitterleaf Teas

Made from an unusual blend of Yashi Xiang (duckshit fragrance) Dancong and Menghai Shou Puer, this tea offers the best of both worlds. The floral fragrance and flavour of the Dancong is a constant, anchoring this tea well after taking a sip, while the shou puer offers an extra layer of texture and smoothness, not to mention a nice complementary flavour.

Now in its second iteration, the formula for 2023 is largely the same, with the biggest change being the use of 2023 material for the Dancong. For now, there is a nice separation of flavours, however, with one pressing already behind us, we expect this tea to settle into itself nicely over the next year.

This is a tea we highly recommend doubling up on. It makes for an enjoyable session now or with age, but also has a way of disappearing quicker than expected.

A funny blend, certainly the first time I drink pu-erh with a Dan Cong oolong. There is an integrated character, but also one can pick out the individual teas. In the end, the experience of this tea is a bit more like and aged sheng actually. However, instead of a cohesive whole, one can feel the two poles pulling – the pungent oolong and the smooth shou.

The aroma has some sweet floral notes, a bit like apricot and rice. The tea is strong with a smooth creamy and cooling mouthfeel and an astringent finish. It has bitter, sweet, earthy, medicinal and herbaceous flavours. Specific flavours remind me of mint, gin, nuts, and barley.
