Canton Raw: Bu Lang 2011

A great example of a compressed traditional beeng cha.
This wonderful, traditional raw puerh cake is made from a ratio of one leaf to one bud. The resulting liquor has a warm, smooth mouthfeel with soft, sweet notes which will naturally mature over the next 20 years and beyond. It comes from Jie Liang village in the Menghai county of Xishuangbanna, an area well known for its distinctive and outstanding puerh.

Well known for outstanding puerh, the local people have been enjoying tea from trees in this area for literally thousands of years.

Brilliant Daily Drinker- I've bought 4...


/ 5

I've tried over 60 Pu'erhs now, and I keep coming back to this as an interesting daily drinker: 5yr old with light compression so not too young and harsh, but a very interesting flavour profile. It manages to have early smoke, a little astringency balanced by a sweet edge, vegetal and umami flavours, but with some top notes of honeysuckle. It has some good strength, and lasts 12+ steeps with 8g / 100ml gaiwan. An absolute steal at the price, so I bought three more. Expertly sourced Canton!

A Very Good Bulang For The Price


/ 5

Although I am new to puerh I have really come to appreciate and enjoy puerh from the Bulang region, so I decided to get one of these 100g cakes to compare to other Bulang's I have tried. I am glad that I did because this is a very decent cake, and although I feel it lacks some of the complexity and qi of other Bulang's I have tried, it certainly hits most of the "high notes". Canton Tea recommends 3-4 grams of tea, however if you are looking for a more powerful, challenging brew I would suggest 8 grams. Using it with my 160ml Gaiwan has lead to some very positive results. It has the Bulang bitterness that I am looking for, although at no point do I find this to be overpowering. The bitterness goes away and you are left with a sweeter aftertaste. The liquid is not that thick, but feels thick enough, coating the mouth, tongue and throat rather nicely. Qi feels calming but not overly powerful. My 100g cake is just about finished now, so I have had some very nice, calm sessions with this tea. To be honest one cannot quibble at all over the £10 price tag. You can get 400g for £40 which to me is not a bad price at all. The tea is clean, refreshing and delivers good bitterness. For me this is a good Bulang for everyday drinking, however there are other Bulangs I will go to if I want more complexity, bitterness and heavier qi. Granted these other Bulangs come at a much heftier price tag (double), so as I said earlier the £10 price tag is quite a bargain really. Overall I have enjoyed this tea a lot, and I would certainly buy at least another cake in the future. It would be interesting to see how this would age after a few years.
