練老師 鳥王種 大紅袍 2024 Limited New Batch
About the new batch: During the New Year, Master Lian and his daughter took out the batch, which had been resting since August, and re-roasted them twice, following their family tradition.
This is a tea that can give you instant joy and relief, and it is also a Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) unlike any other you've tasted before. Master Lian has applied the traditional DHP methods from his family origin in Fujian onto tea leaves foraged from the ancient, indigenous Bird King trees in Guizhou: an expression of his nostalgia and a tribute to both of his homes.
As the complex floral flavours roll back and forth in your mouth and throat, you will likely find hidden joy from the charcoal fire or encounter glimpses of the indescribable yet distinct flavours unique to the Bird King trees. If you want to connect with the part of you that is joyous, relaxed and graciously expressive, this is a tea for you.
Earthy, Fruity, Roasty, Sweet, and Woody
Indigenous Tree Type
What's so special about this tea?
Beautiful roasted aroma, rocky and slightly salty mouthfeel, and a long lasting flavour combining both.
The tea is absolutely amazing but the packaging was poor, the leaves arrived broken. Hopefully they will pack the next order properly…
Deliciously aromatic, rich and comforting. The imagery I am reminded of is sitting around a camp fire roasting marshmallows, eating chocolate and graham crackers. This tea is like a warm hug.
