From Camellia Sinensis

This award-winning first class tea is one of the hundreds of wulong teas in its category from 6000 lots presented at this year’s competition in Luku. Rolled into small homogeneous balls, the leaves feature the colours typical of the traditional cooking in the region, the essential prerequisite to enter the competition. Its liquor, rich and oily, deploys its aromatic complexity with excellent balance, oscillating between heavier aspects of bark and toasted bread and more volatile floral notes. Its ripe fruit character blends harmoniously with its sweet and zesty accents. A great tea, delicious from beginning to end.

Geek Steep S2E20 – Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Gongfu!

This one is for all the fans of bad movies. Like, really bad movies.

I’ll be honest in saying that I had another tea in mind when I went to rewatch this movie. It doesn’t even matter what the tea was because I got about a minute into the six minute long real time car ride scene that starts the movie and I IMMEDIATELY decided that my chosen tea was not ridiculous enough.

Now, you might be looking at this tasting note and the way I’ve prepared this tea and thinking that it very much does not seem like I ended up picking something ridiculous. However, that’s sort of what I was going for. In this moment the most ridiculous pairing I could possibly think of was to choose a tea that takes itself very seriously and drink it with what is definitely the least serious movie possible.

This is honestly such a beautiful tea and the steeps have such a delicate but defined evolution of flavour. Soft floral lilacs and perfectly toasted golden hazelnuts – and every time I took a sip of that delicate, nuanced liquor while a bird squawked or a machine gun went off I could just feel the largest smile crawling up my face. Pure insanity, and the mismatch of this serious type of tea and steeping method with this CHAOS was just lovely. Lovely.

I was giddy.
