Long Live The Queen 2019 Yiwu Raw Puer



Without expecting to add another Yiwu tea for 2019, this tea changed our plans fairly quickly. As someone who has been sourcing around Yiwu long before our days said, this tea is reminiscent of how the “old Yiwu” flavour used to be.

Made from old tree Lao Jie material, this tea has a great lasting fragrance, pleasant huigan, and pleasing price to match. It’s an excellent choice for those looking to step up their puer game from the budget level, but still without the bank account-draining effect of premium teas.

Picking period: Pre-April 4

    This tea for me was a great example of what a “classic Yiwu” flavor is. The aroma on the early steeps was more savory but there was some floral aftertaste and on the exhale a floral aroma. The texture was medium viscous. I would describe it as oily rather than thicc. I started to notice some tea energy building up after the second and third steeps but it never got to strong. Not much changed throughout the session other than the long lasting sweet aftertaste being replaced by some bitterness and astringency. Yiwu teas are known to age very well and I think this one would would definitely age well.

    You can tell that this is a Yiwu tea the second you smell it – even with the wrapper still on. The aroma is deeply lush and reminiscent of honey. As is usually the case with Yiwu, the sweetness is the strongest flavor, but this is certainly a very complex tea. A slight floral flavor and dense forest floor aroma really compliment the sweetness. I’m very much looking forward to aging this tea and tasting it in a few years.
