  • Bulang 2010 Spring
    $74.00
    357g
    Bulang 2010 Spring
    A fantastic blend of Bulang leaves, this great value cake was produced by our friend Mr. Yu under his private label Che Ma Xuan in Spring of 2010. The Chinese character "qian" 乾 on the front of the cake refers to tea trees planted during the reign of the Qianlong emperor (1736-1795). A floral barnyard aroma fills the empty cup. This is a "gentle" Bulang, it has bitterness if pushed, but with the bitterness comes a pleasing sweet aftertaste on the tongue. A little leaf goes a long way with this cake. Really enjoyable.

    1998 Menghai Factory - Red Mark Red Ribbon
    The 1998 Red Mark Red Ribbon (勐海茶厂红中红丝带) is one of the most famous and high quality cakes produced by the Menghai factory in the late 1990s. It has a signature red ribbon embedded in the cake, and this particular batch has benefited from great storage in Taiwan with natural humidity. Liquor - cola colored with a reddish orange tinge. Aroma - sweet dates, medicinal, aged agar wood. Taste: Dates and goji berries, old leather, flavorful tannins, complex, with a sweetness that builds through the infusions. Mouthfeel - thick, full, some fine silt. Aftertaste - subtle, enticing throat & tongue coating huigan. Chaqi - very noticeable energetics, starting in upper chest like an inflating rising bubble, can get a little giddy. Spreads to the arms by end of session. Stamina - up to 10 infusions. A fantastic, rare find.

    60g
    Premium Tie Luo Han 2017
    This premium tie luo han is pure "zhengyan", meaning sourced from within the protected wuyishan nature reserve. The dry leaves smell of roasted nuts but the wet leaves smell herbaceous, with a strong hint of fruit. The tea liquor is nutty, mineral and slightly bitter at the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is thick and malty, charcoal swirls up the inner cheeks. A beautiful floral aroma lingers in the empty cup. One of the best yancha we've ever tasted.

    Bulang Secret Garden 2014 Spring
    With prices rising for those famous puer producing villages, we've explored further afield to bring you great tasting cakes from those undiscovered places, where value can still be found. This cake is from one such "secret garden." The aroma is brimful of nectar, honey and flowers. Yet true to its Bulang roots the wet leaves have a whiff of smoke, a base of fried yellow beans, moist earth and damp logs. The flavor is classical Bulang, bringing a righteous amount of kuse, but not overpowering, with an airy huigan left on the breath. This is an approachable cake, even for Bulang beginners, but we recommend shorter steep times for best results.

    $107.00
    200g
    Xi Kong 2014 Spring
    This is our favorite cake from our 2014 Spring production. The gaiwan lid gives off dandelion and wildflowers, with traces of cocoa and tobacco. It tastes delicious too, with sweet nectar in the soup, and a few drops of melted butter. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous, silky smooth. A spot of huigan dots the top back of throat. Sublime stuff. We highly recommend this one!
