From Whispering Pines Tea Company

Wildcrafted from trees approaching 100 years old at an elevation of 2000m near the Lancang River, Red Temple embodies forest wilderness. Incredibly rich and clean, this tea carries notes of malt, chocolate, cream, and wild medicinal herbs among so many more complexities. I like to think of this tea as Ancient Spirit’s little brother.

Sipdown 58-2021
Another very sad sipdown. I was really enjoying having this at work. Such a nice pick me up half way through the day. On to the next tea!

this is just /chef’s kiss/

malty, creamy, bittersweet chocolate-y it does remind me a little of Ancient Spirit which is a good thing bc that is my absolute favourite tea. I was so excited to see this sample in my last WP order and am patiently waiting for this to be restocked.

edit, here is a nice song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abKBYZX_1sM

[Spring 2019 Harvest] This is a Yunnan Red from old wild trees that Whispering Pines started offering recently. The tea is complex and reminded me of drinking a good red wine. There are so many different flavors that I will not even try to describe all of them. It’s easier to note what is NOT there: I did not find any fruitiness or mineral notes.

I had it Western but I think it would be good gong fu as well. Herbs, malt, honey, bitterness… Very well balanced, so nothing dominates. Vibrant. It tasted and smelled much like a good Zhen Shang Xiao Zhong (my favorite kind of tea) but with a distinctly dianhong-ish sweet note at the end. This tea has a pleasant aftertaste and re-steeps well, although losing most of its original complexity.

I liked it.
