From white2tea

Yesheng Gushu Hongcha, literally translated as “wild ancient tree red tea”, this tea comes from a wild varietal of tea leaf.

After making appearances in our tea club, there were angry pitchfork carrying members at the gates demanding more of this wild tea. We took the remainder of the 2021 production and pressed it for the site.

A gnarly little tea with wild characteristics far outside the norm of what is considered a black tea, best to leave preconceptions at the door. Pungent aromas that drift between fruit and funk over a body of bitter-sweetness. Worth the price of admission as a unique tea experience.

Each cake is 200g. Cakes are packaged in tongs of five cakes

White2Tea club – Sipdown.

I didn’t like the taste of this one. Dry leaf smells fruity. Taste is fruity, but has an unpleasant aftertaste. Astringent and drying.

Gongfu!

So, like past years, I haven’t only been drinking advent teas. Admittedly it’s been harder to sneak in other teas this year, but every now and then I just need to brew something up that’s not on the docket for the day – like this tea!

I think the biggest thing I’ve been craving this year is just more black tea. There have been a fair amount in my five different advents, but it’s honestly felt like there have been so many more green teas and oolong than normal. So, gotta supplement that! This black tea has got a rich and syrupy liquor with a pungently sweet floral aroma and heavy notes of fermenting red fruits, roses, and bitter baker’s cocoa. Really unique and punchy!
