From O5 Tea

Mind-boggling, insanely smooth raw Pu Er. Crafted with leaves from ancient trees, it has the energy and ‘gan’ of ancient tree Yunnan teas. It has, however, an almost fruity nature that is reminiscent of old tree Phoenix Dan Cong.

Brainchild of Gao Feng and Fan Xiu Li, two of the coolest, most talented people that we know in Yunnan (well versed in calligraphy, brush painting, Chinese ancient music, incense and… tea!), this tea is one of our team’s all time favourites.

If you’ve ever wondered about the concept of ‘tea drunk’, please try this!

This was the second tea brewed for us during our O5 tasting. To be honest, I found the first two steeps to be somewhat forgettable tasting however I did really like the thick yet smooth texture of the liquor. The later steeps were more to my taste with a mineral woodiness alongside peachy fruity notes and a little bit of a floral lychee kind of undertone. I’ve been loosely interested in Lincang as a region lately, so I did appreciate getting to add another lincang production to my Rolodex of teas I’ve tried.

What was really interesting to me was that my mom, who generally HATES pu’erh, actually really liked this one. In fact, it was her favourite of the three and I think actually one of her favourites teas she tried of the whole trip. If I genuinely thought she’d have brewed it for herself I probably would have picked some up for her, but instead I think it’s best for me to make a mental note that she might have more of an interest in similar sheng to this so I can brew something like it for her when I visit later in the summer.
