Club selection of August 2016 - The Bulang who produce some famously bitter and pungent blends of ‘sheng’ (raw) Puerh are the providers of the leaves for this cooked or ‘shou’ Puerh. Most of the region around Bulang Mountain Township is made up of ancient tea trees and the region is known more for its ‘gu shu’ or ancient tree teas than it is for its younger bush teas. Known for some astringency and slight bitter tangs, this Bulang offering in the cooked form is a tea very much for the ‘now’. Light stimulant force make this tea a great tea for anytime or for blending with florals (natural of course). This tea is often blended with chrysanthemum for cooling the core body temperature. Discover this Bulang tea even further with Jeff.
Tasting Notes - Bulang teas are known for their bitter notes (and by bitter we mean that in a ‘good’ southern Yunnan way), and vegetal strength. This particular offering is smooth with a clean hay aftertaste…shou’s aren’t for everyone, but those who do enjoy a cooked Puerh will enjoy this combination of tang and smoothness. We encourage a little playing with infusion times and strengths as the tea may appear dark in the cup, without necessarily being strong on the palate.
