From Bitterleaf Teas

Our most popular huang pian brick is back, now with an extra year of wisdom under its belt.

Made from the huang pian (yellow leaf) material of our 2018 WMD Mansa raw puer, this tea makes for an excellent daily drinker that is all around smooth and sweet.

Although huang pian material isn’t as sought after, this tea lacks nothing in terms of flavour and body, with a healthy dose of chaqi/energy to boot.

I brewed this tea in a more respectful fashion today than when I wrote my last note, and I ended up with 13 infusions and a bit more palatable profile. My overall impression hasn’t changed much though. It’s a nice one for a 0.1$/g Yiwu, but hardly suitable for anything other than casual drinking imo.

The taste profile is indeed pretty sweet and tart with a short-lived bitterness. Today, the flavours I wrote down in my notes include apple, meat, wood, passion fruit, straw, honey, and pattypan squash. Additionally, vanilla and lemongrass also appeared in the aftertaste which has a strong huigan for a huangpian.

From the weekend!

I know this is a favourite of my manager – well, an earlier year’s version of this material anyway. I picked it up this Spring because I was curious to try it given that he likes it, and because it was really cheap.

I can see why he likes like – it’s got a nice coating sweetness and it pretty smooth and easy going. I imagine this would be _really_hard to over steep and brew poorly and he drinks most of his sheng Grandpa style so that’s a quality that would be very appealing for him. The session, for me, was pleasant but I found that I wanted a bit more depth or nuance to the flavour – however I do think this is a perfectly good tea for its price point. I imagine I’ll finish the rest of my sample Grandpa style…
