2013 ‘Fangyuan’ Bulang ‘Gushu’ Raw Puerh Tea Cake
£5.25 – £56.50
BIG peach/apricot stone-fruit notes. A high level material Bulang production
Guangdong stored since 2013 but the ‘brutal Bulang’ cake doesn’t seem to exhibit strong signs of this (taste wise). The ‘Fangyuan’ production is badged up as a ‘Gushu’ but apon tasting and given the keen price point, i very much doubt it is! This aside, the (what i believe it to be) Da Shu or Gushu/Da Shu blend production is actually very good! Aroma of peach/apricot. Flavour is mellow to start but builds to a very overt, apricot/stone fruity number! Infusion 2 onward offers a fulfilling apricot/peach taste that just carries. Lingering bitterness and returning sweetness noticeable.
