The 2017 Farmer Direct Tea (FDT) is a blend of several areas, with an emphasis on Menghai area character. Fast, lingering sweetness in the mouth and a sticky mouth texture. This tea is perfect to drink right away or age for the long haul.
The 2017 IPA blend is inspired by hop heavy India Pale Ales. The tea has a strong, lingering bitterness with a bright fragrance on the top. A burly tea with an aggressive character. Good for a strong session.
The 2017 tuhao as fuck is a blend of raw Puer material with character similar to Laobanzhang, without using any actual Laobanzhang material. Slightly heavier bitterness than in previous years, with a follow up of sweetness, the character is aggressive.
The tea itself is excellent quality despite not being “real” Laobanzhang. Aggressive in the first few years, this tea can benefit from some resting before drinking.
The 2017 Dangerous Messengers is a blend of Menghai area tea, aggressive and sweet with a touch of bite. This tea is calm enough to drink right away, but might be too strong for some to drink immediately. Quality tea built to age for the long term.
The 2017 She's Not Me is mildly astringent in early steeps, followed by sweetness and a pleasant fragrance. A blend of several areas with an emphasis on Menghai character. This tea is great to drink right away or age for the long term.
