Dark Forest 2015 Spring

Inbetween Wangong and Bohetang, is a small tea grove we've labelled "Dark Forest" because the tea trees are overshadowed by tall forest trees. A remote and secret place, only a tiny amount of tea is produced here. It took 3 trips into the forest to make this 16kg batch! An extremely limited and unique, wild-grown pu'er tea. Can you taste the free spirit of these dark forest trees?

Thick, sweet, and buttery

Review by Charlie in Richmond
I have found this to be a very enjoyable tea. The leaves are dark green (as in the picture) and slightly on the smaller side. The gaiwan gave a typical grassy/hay smell with sweetness emerging after my 3rd steep. However, the soup has a wonderful sweetness from the beginning. I've found it to have a thick mouth feeling with a very consistent sweet and buttery experience throughout the infusions... very much to my current tea preferences.

This is my first review, and I recently ordered 8 samples from Eugene & Belle. It came with fantastic packaging and a hand written note on stationary. It is worth ordering from them just for that experience. (Posted on 2/21/16)
