Club selection of August 2019 - A deep flavoured offering from one of our favourite areas, Zhang Lang. Harvested from old trees at 1400 metres from soils that have retained so much of what contributes positively to growth, our tea procurer, Jeff, returns again and again to the region’s teas. Zhang Langs have always given long and malty notes and this Spring harvest 2019 is no different. Powerful, long flavour notes that retain for a sustained time within the mouth, finishes soft and smooth. A classic tea of strength and roundness, we are simply calling it our 深 (Shēn). Discover this Deep Shēn Sheng tea even further with Jeff.
Tasting Notes - Long smooth notes with some soft malty edges to it, the Zhang Lang is a comfort tea that hits with power. It is a tea that rarely gets mentioned outside of Yunnan but is a constant favourite amongst drinkers, particularly in Menghai, in southern Yunnan. A powerful tea that is one of those that will age wonderfully. Store in a place without humidity or odors, in a vessel or container that allows air to freely pass through it.
