Forrest Tree Tea:

Deep in the mountains in Xishuangbanna in southern Yunnan tea trees grow wild amongst other woods and plants in Bulang Shan. Ethnic mountain people, particularly women, bring with them wood ladders and a plank for platform for plucking in tea season, perhaps as it has always been since antiquity. As a continuation of this tradition, Bulang Silver Spring is hand-processed and slow dried over wood charcoal the same way. This shengcha puer is bright and refreshing when consumed as a new tea, or can be put away for maturity.

明前喬木 布朗銀毫

Taste profile

Overtone of fresh hay with hints of pinewood smoke on an earthy undertone. Slight accents of Chinese herbs. Sweet, lively, long body with a potent presence of bitterness that reminds of American ginseng and the root of liquorice. Persistent undertone of dried jujube with hints of malt. Lingering sweet aftertaste and very quenching.

Infusion tips

Always blanch the leaves before infusion for this tea. This allows for not only easier opening up of the leaves for a truer taste profile, but also expedites taste release when you employ shorter infusions.

For a controlled amount of bitterness and yet the full taste profile, try 1g to 100ml water and infuse for 5 minutes. If you prefer lighter tastes, use shorter infusion time and a larger leaf to water ratio.

The taste profile of this tea changes with time. Different storage conditions have effects on the outcome.

Bulangshan ( Chinese: 布朗山 )

This is one of the most important pu’er regions in the Xishuangbanna ( 西雙版納 ) area in southern Yunnan. Administratively it is part of Menghai county ( 勐海縣 ), where many famous pu’er regions are. Legend has it that the Bulang ethnic group ( who now resides also in a few other pu’er regions ) was the first people in Yunnan to produce tea, if not the first in the world.
