July: Bulang Mountain Sheng

Club selection of July 2015 - Slight hints of vegetal astringency are what the Bulang people’s teas are known for. These little hints of bitterness do not last long though and give way to wonderful tones and make for a great summer tea. Bitterness (at least in the Asian frame of reference) is a great quality for combating heart ailments, circulatory issues and cooling the nervous system, so this tea with its strength is an ideal choice. From Lao Ma Er village deep in the Bulang Mountains of southern Yunnan province it is a great example of an authentic ‘green’ raw Puerh that is ideal for ageing because it carries much innate strength in its leaves. Discover this Bulang Mountain tea even further with Jeff.

Tasting Notes - With its vegetal astringency and strength this is a great tea to perk up a palate. We’ve chosen this as a summer tea because it has that ability to stimulate and when chosen to make cold it is further enhanced as a coolant for the mouth and body alike. Great for after spicy meals or just a mid-day blast it is a tea that will age well and should be experimented a little in terms of infusion times. If making a batch for cold tea we recommend making slightly stronger brews with longer infusion times as the strength will dissipate slightly with the refrigeration.
