Strong as can be but still drinkableReview by Jiāng Luo (from Steepster)

An expensive daily-drinkerReview by bellmont
- Wide leaves and brew that comes out much lighter than the website pictures. The website also denotes “earthiness” and I am really struggling to find it in this tea which is light amalgamation of bitter, mint and honeysuckle sweet throughout the entire session. This a good daily drinker, though pricey ($64.27 for 357g) when one considers the overall experience. Other vendor offer similar bulang/menghai county daily drinkers for half the price with no different taste experience. (Posted on 9/1/15)
And so, a secret was told...Review by Rogo
This tea was a joy, and being so young it was hard to place.
It resembles a merging of high quality LongJing and some greener Taiwanese oolongs, however tasted like neither. This will no doubt change in a year or two.
The viscosity was nice and oily, and the hue was a sandy green/amber, beautiful and young.
Surprisingly this tea did not deliver a bold bitterness, but instead did the cha-cha at the back of my throat, which ebbed into a sticky sweet finish, mild yet distinct.
This is undoubtedly a Bulang, the aromas are extremely western Puerh and beautiful.
I am sat, captivated by the complexity of the aromas, sweet grass, butter fried candy, I stoop into a deep meditation.
Shares little resemblance to it's Yiwu cousins...
It is a subtle tea, for the patient and searching soul, capturing so much; yet there is a strong feeling, that it is holding deep within, a little 'secret', that only the bold can discover.
A secret was told,
Of the gardens of Bulang,
A place for the bold. (Posted on 12/19/14)
