Vision 2023 Gaoshan Raw Puer



This tea is a shining example of what we love about Yiwu teas. Typical to Yiwu in general, it exhibits a pleasant fragrance and soft texture that makes it approachable, but with a bolder flavour and more depth.

Made from early spring Gaoshan qiaomu (arbor) material, this tea has a sweetness that penetrates deep into the soup, with very low bitterness and astringency, making it ideal for those who shy away from the more aggressive style of Menghai teas, astringent-leaning Lincang teas, or rougher Jingmai/Simao teas, but still want an engaging and highly enjoyable raw puer.

This tea makes for a great stepping stone from something like our budget friendly Year of the Rabbit Yiwu, into the world of mid-range puers, not to mention is a strong candidate for both drinking now and storing for later.

Picking period: March 25 – April 3


Many of our samples for spring 2023 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:

    Knowing how much Gaoshan material costs it is surprising to find one at this price. Having said that, however, I find it too simple, with slight herbaceous tones, slightly fruity and floral but hardly recognizable. In the mouth the body is of medium thickness, balanced but not very persistent, with a not too perceptible huigan and a negligible qi.

    The second dragon ball of this tea was honestly a letdown. I was hoping for that complex, flowery flavor that wowed me the first one, but it was barely there.. It lacked the strong floral taste I loved before. No lasting aroma either. By the fourth brew, it was just plain

    Pleasant taste. For a moment of deep introspection.
    //Smell : Intense floral notes, zesty water concoction, clean home, fruit candy, perfumed (dry) hay
    //Texture: Heat on the tip of the tongue, sensation of liquor evaporating, cheeks covering, medium texture
    //Taste : Potatoes cream, mineral, herbaceous, rice noodles, astringency, perfumed hay, asparagus sauteed in maple syrup
    //Body sensation: Strong heart-rate sensation, shaky hands, light headed, heat production, heavy eyes
