Resistance 2020 Nanmo Raw Puer



Our second Nanmo region tea for this year, this tea is like drinking a flower with teeth. The overall profile is quite similar to Drink Me, but as the tea comes from larger qiaomu/arbor trees, it is a little denser in flavour and fuller in mouth feel.

Your gongfu brewing chops will be an asset with this tea. Push too hard and its bitterness will come to the forefront. On the same note, it can still be approachable with a gentle touch. It’s up to you.

Picking period: Pre-March 28


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:

    A thick, juicy, pungent delight. Powerful from the outset and very happy to give full flavour. It’s quite adaptable to the level of strength you want.

    The vibrant leaves look lovely and uniform. I get a lot of zest and sweet floral notes from them, followed by a deeper finish that keeps on giving. Easy to drink but more fun to savour for as long as you can.

    One of my favourites by Bitterleaf. Bought a full tong of this one. Good bite, grabs you by the teath, very intense mouth feel. I get notes of Orchid and Flowers, pleasant bitterness and huigan.
