From Bitterleaf Teas

This marriage of shou puer and chenpi (orange peel) is love at first sip. Using high quality blend of 2015 old tree material from Bangwei and Jingmai for the shou puer and Guangdong oranges, this tea exhibits a pleasant camphor scent, light medicinal flavour and rich texture.

Each dragon ball is 9 grams in size, but breaks in half quite easily for those smaller sessions.

Grandpa style!

I’m quite certain that this isn’t the first chenpi production I’ve had from Bitterleaf Tea, but I can’t for the life of me remember the name of any previous ones they’ve released. I did enjoy this dragonball brewed up grandpa though – I drank it over the course of the morning yesterday in between hard good testing for me and it was thick and warming with really deep and robust petrichor notes to the shou and a medicinal and coating orange undertone. While it was challenging to see the tea leaf while drinking because the soup was so dark and opaque, I noticed after I was dumping out/cleaning the mug that the chenpi was these very long “threads” that seemed to have been woven in with pu’erh, which I thought was pretty cool!

I’ve got many of these dragonballs, so looking forward to lots of cozy infusions as well as trying this out Gongfu!


Were the “threads” retaining the leaf, or serving some other function?

It was just like long ribbons of cut orange peel – not actual thread. Maybe a poor choice of words on my part. The whole dragonball came apart as it steeped; I just liked the visual of these long orange peel strands.


Nice! Of course, I must ask whether it does justice to Shakespeare, that is the question! And can you review it in iambic pentameter? ;-)
