Impress Forcibly Through Unexpectedness 2020 Spring Wuliang Baimudan White Tea

$5.00$145.00

Description

Made from Wuliang shan material that is typically used for puer, this baimudan grade white tea is a perfect example of how unique Yunnan white teas can be.

This tea has a crisp, clear fragrance up front and a long lasting sweetness in the mouth and throat. The flavour plays a delicate balancing act between floral and fruity. And while we normally stray away from commenting on specific notes, this tea has enough of an apple cider note that we feel it’s worth mentioning.

This tea was one of the more surprising and satisfying finds for 2020, performing like a tea 2-3x the price.

For fans of our annual White Crow Shoumei, we strongly recommend this tea as a companion cake, as together they highlight the differences the leaf grade can make in terms of delicateness, texture and flavour.

    That is the first white tea I really love. Often white teas have an unpleasent note in the background to me, but this one does not have that at all. This tea is incredibly creamy, floral and even slightly fruity (especially in the first three infusions). I could not stop sniffing the wet leaves, because they really have an interesting lemony-apply-creamy scent with the more typical Bai Mu Dan floweriness along. The taste is in the first infusions similar, very sweet and creamy, reminding me of some delicious lemon cream desert (with some flower). After infusion 4 or so the tea tastes more like a typical Bai Mu Dan, just without that odd aftertaste I often dislike; so creamy and flowery. That really was my surprise tea this year (I count it to 2020 still), because its my first white tea I will be very sad about when its gone.

    I was at first drawn to this tea by the art on the wrapping! But when I tasted it I was sad I hadn’t bought a whole cake! Notes of fresh flowers and crispy apples first caughts up in a sweet balance. Then some hints of cinammon and honey comes to finish in grace! Definitly part of my next order if still available!

    I’ve been trying a lot of different white teas in this price range from BLT and other vendors. This is by far the best one. In fact it’s one of my favorite teas I’ve tried in any category. The value/quality ratio is unreal, I have no idea how this isn’t sold out yet considering it’s superior to White Crow in every single way. The leaves are quality material. The immediate flowery taste reminds me of yao bao, but the aftertaste is where this tea shines. It really does taste like green apples and is very prominent. And it lasts for a very long time, similar to White Crow but better in my opinion. A tea to sip on for hours or just finish in 30 min. The leaves can take many infusions gong fu style, I use boiling water. I already have a tong and loose cake of this, and I’m considering another tong, that’s how much I like this tea.

    This is a very well crafted cake . Leaf material is consistent and gracefully comes apart with a gentle tug. The rinsed leaves gave unusual top notes , but promising.

    Sadly, unlike other reviewers I did not appreciate this tea. Its very light, to the point of flatness with lingering but vanishing notes of floral and sweetness. But not enough to ground the tea

    Unlike many Bai Mu Dan, the body is wholly lacking. Slightly astringent and puckered on the back end which gives an impression of dry hard cider, and green apples that others have noted.

    The wet leaves, do give off intriguing notes of caramelized wood, with slightly cedar florality- like a fine sauna! But for some reason these notes utterly vanish on the palate.

    It very clearly was put together by a Sheng producer. Because there’s an unmistakable young “shengyness” about it. Like a cousin of puerh, passing as a white tea, with none of the shining qualities of either.

    I’ll stick to more traditional Bai Mu Dan.

    The wet leaves have an interesting apple note. To my taste, the liquor lacks of complexity. It’s pure, fresh and herbaceous. Similar hay notes that sheng have but maybe a little more salty. This being said, I like that the tea becomes sweeter and sweeter throught the infusions.

    This tea didn’t really come through for me although the smell of its dry and wet leaves are creamy and promising, intoxicating even.

    I like the coating in my mouth from the tea and its smoothness, but sadly the taste didn’t bloom much over the steeps.
