Oh Deer! 2021 Kunlu Raw Puer



With this year’s material comprising of a mixed picking of young and older arbour trees, this tea offers up a full flavour and pleasant mouth feel. Kunlu is known for having wild and semi-wild trees, as well as a wide range of varietals that can be found, giving different pickings and productions their own unique style.

Just as with the previous year, this tea starts out with a mineral-sweet flavour, some gentle bitterness and a slight vegetal quality that continues to build with each brew. Both the fragrance and sweetness are long lasting and distinct, accompanied by a nice body feeling.

Picking period: Blend of 1st and 2nd flush, pre-April 15


Many of our samples for spring 2021 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:

    This is so good! I tried it without any resting right after unboxing the package and it was a ball part of the Treat Yourself set. I absolutely love it. It has some young Kunlu strength and bitterness but the texture is so soft and velvety. I love how sweet it is and the complex beany fragrance reminds me of some high mountain Longfengxia oolong from Taiwan but with more mouthfeel and anything you’d want from a tea. I think this is cheap enough to be classified as a daily drinker – a really good daily drinker. It has some jittery energy which is good if you want to be energized. The aftertaste is quite sweet and the fragrance don’t leave your mouth for half an hour. I’m a huge fan of 1g:15ml ratio, but I think this one is very good for lower tea ratio – something like 1g:20ml.

    This was my favorite from the 2021 lineup (excluding the top shelf cakes, and the OG Naka was a close second). I have a hard time pinning it down, I suggest sampling it yourself if you like clean, natural and easy to drink young sheng. The leaves just speak to me, the tea has some quality to it that just makes me feel good. This is an example of BLTs propensity for unblended sheng gone very right.
