Black Rabbit 2023 Yiwu Black Tea



Made using the same left-to-grow (fangyang) material as our annual Year of the ____ Yiwu raw puer, this budget friendly black tea offers a savoury and floral experience, punctuated by a sugary sweetness and slightly fruity aftertaste.

This tea is machine roasted according to our preference for black teas, as it offers more consistency and control. We recommend brewing this tea with ~90c degree water in order to achieve the best results. We also find that this tea performs well over a longer time span, settling into itself and developing nicely after 6-12 months or more.

For a more in-depth description of the environment where this tea comes from, you can read more here. Once our year of the Rabbit raw puer is pressed, we recommend picking up a cake to compare the same material with different processing.

Picking period: Pre-April 7th

    An excellent black tea from an area extremely suited to sheng pu. You can feel it in its delicacy which initially features notes of cocoa and ripe fruit, caramel, malt and grape skin, it is very similar to its bigger brother from Tongqinghe, but with a special mention for the extremely high quality/price ratio. It is a hong cha that offers more than you might expect from a classic daily tea and the tin packaging helps to preserve the leaves and be able to observe its excellent preparation. It’s definitely a dianhong I’ll be stocking up on.

    Another high quality budget drinker from Bitterleaf! At first it starts off with a combo of nuts, hay, cereal, and cocoa. A touch astringent up front but quickly fades into these lovely sweet and silky steeps. Light red fruit notes, plum, raisin, white sugary sweetness, and almost a slight bready note on the backend.
