From white2tea

A project that began in 2019, this tea is a culmination of several years of experimentation with charcoal roasting Puer. The Injured Coast blend was sent to Fujian province to be charcoal roasted by hand by veteran Wuyi Yancha makers. The result is a truly unique tea. A blend of 2020 and 2021 raw Puer teas, roasted in autumn 2021 in Fujian and rested until pressing this spring.

Fruit and flame, injured coast has a thick and intense honey suckle sweetness balanced with the charred intensity from the roast. Beautiful tea.

Each mini is ~7g.

Gongfu!

This sheng is pretty peculiar in the fact it’s actually charcoal roasted, and of coarse I just had to try it because there’s nothing I love more than weird and experimental! It certainly lives up to its description of being unique, though I’m still undecided on whether that’s a good thing or not. Initial steeps were pretty heavily roasty with a lot of upfront bitterness and char notes; it also lingered in a strange way on the back of my tongue. Though this tea session seemed a bit rough and choppy for a while there, I did originally hit a short lived sweetspot around infusion four or five where the unbalanced notes had settled into something sweeter and more syrupy that make me think of grilled stonefruits in a really pleasant way.

Usually I’m all in when it comes to roasted teas, but there was something about this one that just felt kind of lopsided to me; I think maybe because it seemed to accentuate so much of the bitterness of the raw pu’erh? I would be so interested to hear from anyone else who gave this hyper peculiar tea a chance! How did you brew it and what did you taste? Did you like it?? I have two more minis left to try and make my mind up about this tea, and I think some peer guided coarse correction with my steeping could really help!
