2020 Spring Wild Black Tea

Golden tips black tea made from ancient assamica tea trees growing wild in Manipur, India. A tea with intense old tree qi to lift your senses up!

For all the assamica lovers in the world, a black tea means a good caffeine kick with a robust astringency. This is different, due to it being made from juicy gushu stuff, the qi is intense but there’s zero astringency. Having a milky liquor with deep caramel notes, this tea also looks like a caramel syrup with a very cloudy liquor. The consistency is what stands out, you get the same complex liquor with notes of oak, caramel, molasses and honey in every steep, from the first to the 8th. Also making appearance is a hint of liquorice root and a sweetness associated with sandalwood.

Steeping Time : 3-4 minutes western style, 20 seconds gongfu style adding 10 seconds every subsequent steep

Had a very robust session with this tea at the park over the weekend. This is such a full bodied and heavy black tea with such pronounced notes of oak, and with the gentle breeze and fresh air around me that almost grizzly, unsweet woodiness feels just so appropriate for the day! On top of that signature taste that carries throughout the session, there are also notes of incense, molasses, and leather with just a bit of malt. It’s not bitter at all though there’s a pleasantly consistent light astringency. This tea feels powerful yet understated!
