From The Essence of Tea

We really like the character of the ancient wild trees in this area of Wuliang mountains & early this year we commissioned a farmer to oversee the picking of this tea and for him to process the fresh leaves. These ancient wild trees only flush once a year & their energy is concentrated in their spring leaves.

The character of wild tea is different from cultivated tea – with a flavour that seems light at first taste but swells up in in body and taste throughout the infusions. The qi is very deep, also beginning in a subtle manner but creeping up as you drink it.

This is a very nice wild tea. It’s clean, smooth and powerful.

2018 EoT Wuliang Wild brewed in a clay gaiwan. Light and refined woody ‘wildfruit’ and grassy pear taste with no smoke or bitterness. Active in the mouth with tangy minerality and drying/mouth-watering qualities. I can feel it going down. The straw-like astringency grows stronger and leaves a pleasant bite in the throat. Kind of nutty/mushroomy/very light iodine aftertaste. Camphor and mild returning sweetness are quick to show. Beautiful floral aroma — don’t forget to smell the lid.

This is a wild tea with a more ephemeral, contemplative almost oolong feel than the aggressive nature of others I’ve tried. That chest-forward energy is there, though; gonna say it’s not suitable as a night-time brew. I’m happy with this tea even if it is short-lived.

Edit: I oversteeped several cups and it still turned out lovely with only a mild background bitterness. I do want to compare brewing the leaf in a porcelain pot and again in the gaiwan with longer infusions. This tea seems like it has wiggle room.

I broke my Yixing gaiwan, think I’ll buy a new one. That doesn’t count as breaking my no-buy, right?

You might have to look elsewhere for justification. My lips are sealed (around this Yixing cup that partners with the gaiwan).

Nattie

Lmao, that’s cold.

Oof, sorry! :$ Really, though, I love this thing: https://yunnansourcing.com/products/yixing-purple-clay-easy-gaiwan-and-cup-set

It’s cheap.

I’ve never had a gaiwan with a pouring lip! Taking note – I’ve favourited the page so I can make my way back to it when the time comes to buy more tea (: Yunnan Sourcing is going to be one of the first companies I place an order with when I can, so hopefully I can stay patient enough to wait until then!

I purchased this tea from Essence of Tea’s website. Brewed out of a medium sized gaiwan.

This tea overall is solid. I got 10 steeps out of my gaiwan with steeps ranging from flash to 5 mins. I get notes of grass, pears, and overall fruity flavors from this tea. The tea did have a considerable bitterness and astringency that wasn’t my favorite, but for the price it’s solid. The feeling I get from it was almost overly energetic, but I tend to favor more relaxing teas so this is more of a preference.

Flavors: Fruity, Grass, Pear
