2015 Spring "Gu Ming Xiang Bing" Yiwu - Bulang Blend Sheng / Raw Puerh
Bordering the western and eastern edges of Xishuangbanna in southern Yunnan are the famous tea mountains of Yiwu and Bulang. Tea from each are defined by unique imagery. Yiwu is called 'The Queen' with a soft, sweet flavor and delicate floral aroma. Bulang is 'The King' with bitter notes and strong tea energy.
These two mountains were blended into this special puerh by Master Feng of Gu Ming Xiang. This tea is a dance. It has the Bulang energy with the soft Yiwu sweetness. Brew it short and experience the delicate Yiwu. Or brew it long and feel the strength of Bulang.
Use 5-10 grams of leaves and brew with 75-150ml of water at or near boiling. Wash once for 3s, then start with a quick steep of around 6s. Brew quickly for the first few steeps. This tea is very generous and can brew quite strong.
