Charmed 2020 Lincang Raw Puer

$5.50$172.00

Description

This tea is an excellent example of why we prioritize environment as the top criteria when sourcing puer. This tea comes from outstanding remote land in Mangga, in the Shuangjiang area (Lincang). These trees have been owned for generations by one family, but mostly left untended and abandoned until recently.

The area where this tea comes from has been affectionately labelled “Cobra Land” after many tea pickers have come across cobras while picking. Although cobras can be hazardous to one’s health (especially if bitten), they are a good sign in tea growing areas, as it usually indicates minimal human interference.

While we’re not always fans of the label “wild”, these untended trees exhibit the unique fragrance and “forest character”, for lack of a better term, that wilder teas tend to have. The fragrance is accompanied by a pleasant sweetness that make this tea very refreshing. There is also a noticeable sensation in the body, making this a tea that’s difficult not to be taken by.

Picking period: Pre-April 15

$0.21/gram

All of our samples for spring 2020 are in dragon ball form. While these balls will perform the same as the cake, they can be slightly trickier to brew. Here’s how we do it:

    received the package today and this was the first to taste out of all! It was not easy to give a distinct flavor, until I came back to see the description and it all made sense. Indeed there is a ‘wild’ taste, which is special in itself. and a lingering thick taste that I cannot put a word to. The image of seeing cobras slithering through the wild grass is so vivid as one enjoys this tea.

    This one isn’t straightforward. It has a nice foresty fragrance, with some fruit in there, but not overly floral in my view. Flavour comes with some gentle apple sweetness, some creaminess, some little bitterness and a refreshing aftertaste. Quite strong though overall. The liquor looks a tad darker than the others I tasted. The texture is very thick, even though I did not use that much tea (since I only received this one as a sample). So if you prefer a thick texture this one is for you. Also it has a noticeable body sensation. It didn’t quite hit my 5 star mark, but it is more a personal preference. I am sure that many will enjoy this tea to the fullest.
