From Bitterleaf Teas

This blend of old tree Hekai huang pian material, including some Big Old-Ass Tree huang pian, provides a meaty meal of a tea. While most huang pian doesn’t mind being given the grandpa style treatment or being doused in boiling water, if you push this one, it can push back.

Each brick features artwork by Lzhr Artwork in postcard format, giving you the option to keep it or mail it to whoever you choose, whether it be friends, family or enemies.

And because nothing is worse than unlabelled tea bricks, we’ve made sure to label the tea underneath the artwork, just use caution to prevent ripping the paper when separating the postcard from the brick.

Today, “Don’t Be Sad” is still very pungent and drying, but also not as grassy and a little bit more sweet, especially in late infusions.

The aroma reminds me of white grapes, tobacco, brazil nuts, mushrooms, and green bell peppers in equal measure. Flavour-wise, it’s not too different from a year ago. There is a tinge of metallic sour bite in the first couple of steeps, which also have a slightly musky, woody character. It gets quite bitter and smooth later on, with some vegetal bite and citrus zest note appearing too. Interestingly, the aftertaste has a distinctive warming feel to it.
