Description

June 22nd, 2021

I've held these tuos for seven months now to wake them up: they were acquired from an authorized Dayi dealer in Kunming and were stored well before I got them. The wet leaves are a little darker than they appear in the pictures, but certainly appear greener than they would if they'd been aged in standard Guangdong dry storage. When I packed the sample tuo up in the warehouse a few nights ago, it had a light sweet floral aroma, but this aroma wasn't as prominent when I tried the tuo today.

The tuo has loosened up nicely over time, and I'm sure seven months with me has certainly helped this tuo along some. It's immediately evident from the surface of the tuo that more whole leaves were used for these tuos than is standard for most Dayi productions today. 

After the rinse, distinctive Bulang character arises, but I could already tell this was going to be a very different session vs. modern Dayi sheng. The aroma was just different, and in  good way.

In the cup, I get sweet wildflower and sweet agarwood, with some light sweet sarsaparilla as well. The Bulang wildflower character in this tea is sweeter and wilder than in more recent Dayi productions, where the aroma is more intense, but less 'wild' tasting. I believe this is due to changes in cultivation practices in Dayi's plantations, and the processing on this tea is more old school (the tea isn't oxidized to modern Dayi levels, where I get distinct oolong notes in the aftertaste). This is a truly lovely tea. There is some astringency in the material yet, and light bitterness, but the flavor is lovely. I'm a big fan of Bulang wildflower-dominant shengs, and I've never had one quite like this. This tea definitely surpassed my expectations, and I would love to get more while I can since this is very different from modern Dayi sheng.

The energy from this tea is mildly calming, but there's certainly a caffeine punch here. This tea isn't overwhelming as far as physical effects, which is a nice change from some of Dayi's modern productions. The real selling point for me here is how lovely the agarwood and wildflower taste in the cup. This is the kind of Bulang tea I'd be happy to have around and I definitely need more of these tuos in my life!
