Powerhouse Raw Gushu PuErh from Bang Pen. Orange marmalade rising in qi and peaking in a fleeting bitterness which swiftly transforms into a sweet, green apple gan.

Pip Killer is part of our dinosaur editions of PuErh all coming from the same Bulang mountain area of Yunnan and selected out of a tasting of twenty tea samples. It is made from leaves plucked from at least 600 year old tea trees (making it a Gushu PuErh) which have been withered, hand fried, sun dried and compressed into 100g cakes.

This tea has the fruitiest character of the three Dinosaur Gushu PuErh’s. A very thick body and deep mineral strength that grips the mouth and throat before releasing alluringly into the sweetest Hui Gan. The infusions begin with orange marmalade and later infusions evoke pear and ginger biscuits.

Season: Spring 2016
Cultivar: Da Ye Zhong Assamica
Origin: Lao Bang Pen, Yunnan, China

wet leaf has an umami smell. about 7 steeps in, and this is certainly gripping of the mouth and throat, but not in an unpleasant way. getting orange, and a bit of pear flavour. i think the orange marmalade flavour is tied a little to the bitterness of this tea, in fact so far it is a little too bitter for me atm. going to throw this in the fridge to cold brew.
