pure, bitter, sweet, astringent, even fruity sourness (of course heavily depends on water used), sometimes finding sheng puerh nuances, sometimes nuttyness pops up, later bitter chocholate aftertaste apparent, a lot of minerality, even lemon ‘flavouring’, a very long runner keeping its thickness and richness, the tea is very nicely ‘digested’, the body feels relaxed
Yěshēng (wild) HuáZhú Liángzi mountain ‘black tea’ made this spring from a ecological enviroment. Sold in a loose form, not pressed.
The tea is processed by shài hóng (sun dried) way. There is no machine process involved (as for most of black teas), the ‘killing green’ step is left out, still tea leaves rolling is involved. The tea ferments naturally. These tea leaves come from wild tea trees (not planted by people). The tea trees age for some is decades for some several hundreds years.
You can’t say what tea is this, either black tea, fermented sheng tea or even black ‘lipton’ tea aromatized with lemon flavour. You might laugh on this description but this tea would bring up a lot more of your ‘tea taste memories’ you might have. A friend of mine would call this ‘pop_peek’, meaning a pop like song/melody from ’80ties. My other long time customer/friend said when he had a first sip he thought he was drinking red wine. Yes, all these and more is hidden in this tea.
Since I first tasted this tea this spring I kept going back to and enjoy it and getting amused by it. It is an amusing tea. Keeps changing its flavours in its endless brews bringing up more and more suprises.
This tea was tested for 200 pesticides and there were found none.
