💧水帘洞 the Water Curtain Cave in Wuyishan ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ Shuiliandong is at the end of a long and gorgeous hike through the Da Hong Pao valley, where cultivated tea bushes are neatly nestled into spaces between epic landforms, ancient monuments, and pristine watercourses. . Seminal figures key in the foundation of Taoism in this area originally set up camp here, and emperors through the eras have visited, some leaving historic cave wall writings. Inside the cave there is a spring whose cistern always stays full, even during drought months. . There is no other place on earth like Wuyishan! ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ #水帘洞 #wuyishan #dahongpaovalley #taoism #daoism #mingdynasty #sonddynasty #wuyi #yancha #rockoolong #shuixian #wulong #武夷山 #gongfu #gongfucha #wuyimountain #wuyi #fujian #cha #tealovers #oolongcha #wulongcha #camelliasinensis #tea #bigredrobe #travelchina #chinaphotography #chineselandscape #ancientchina

I drank the last of my 2016 Shui Jin Gui (Golden Water Turtle) from @wuyiorigin this morning. Mineral, caramel, and stone fruit flavors are all present, and the tea has a long and very pleasant aftertaste that left me feeling satisfied.

The flash rinse and leaves of a ‘Premium Cassia’ 精特肉桂. From a local tea place that specialises in yancha. — My tongue can’t differentiate much. I’m trying to recall the Qi Lan, etc that I’ve had before, and all I can recall is the malt roastiness. There is an aftertaste on my tongue, not huigan, that’s a bit surprising – a litte bit green, almost vegetal. Also has a slight cooling effect at the back of my throat, though it doesn’t last. — Because I’m very perplexed by my complete inability to differentiate between the yanchas, I’ve just gone an done a quick thing. I opened up my sample bags (Qi Lan, Shui Xian, Narcissus, Daphne Odora) and sniffed them one by one in quick succession. Like this, I can tell the difference. I see why I only ever remember the malt-roast note – it’s very pervasive. — It’s actually a very pleasant tea, no astringency or bitterness. But I think I’m coloured by the memory of drinking $1 bottled Pokka Oolong every day in junior college. (Maybe it would have been different if I’d had Coca Cola’s @authenticteahouse Da Hong Pao instead? 😂) Will try the other yancha again with more attentiveness!

Rainy summer brings back old memories. The broken wall in the picture is what's left of the old village. The village was flooded years ago. Since the flood, the village moved further inland by a few hundred meters. Today, the old village site becomes tea fields.😀 • • Follow @valleybrooktea and get our daily tea updates! • • #valleybrooktea #chinesetea #tea #wuyitea #rocktea #oolongtea #blacktea #whitetea #dahongpao #rougui #wuyishan #wuyimountain #gongfutea #kungfutea #jinjunmei #teablog #teaharvest #teatable #zhengyan #yancha

2003 Sea Dyke LCSX. This is a pretty good aged oolong. The dry leaf has a nice woody aroma. Once hot water hits the leaves the scent of minerals and dried fruit become more pronounced. Those same aromas are present in the tea's flavors. The sweet fig-like taste is particularly enjoyable, and something I've previously experienced when drinking extremely old yancha. Apparently after 2003 the "Wuyi" designation was removed from these tins, a sign that the company behind them had started to source their tea from the greater Fujian area instead (the normal practice with yancha these days). I've had a 2015 tin of of this tea that I believe was composed of an inferior blend of base material -- the flavor was light and not all that interesting -- and I don't feel like the aging prospects of those tins are as good as the 2003 version. If you live in the US check the older local Asian markets around you -- sometimes you can find old teas like this one still on the shelves, neglected and covered in dust, waiting for the right person to pick them up. #tea #agedtea #oolong #agedoolong #seadyke #yancha #yixing #gongfucha

It’s 23 June and this is the first tea session I’ve had outside this year. Remarkable. Hamish “helped” with preparations and I got to enjoy some salted caramel fudge Jill bought me (us, it turns out...) from the Royal Highland Show while reading more of the latest Iain Sinclair book. The tea was some wonderful 2018 Shuiliandong Rougui from @thetea.pl.

Testing some tieluohan 2019 // should we bring back the iron ahrat? It’s still too freshly roasted to really taste it fully so the unglazed winter snow classic teapot is a good choice to soften up the mouth feeling and turned out quite smooth. Will do more testing in gaiwan in the future before deciding to buy as glazed ceramic is the more accurate brewing way to evaluate a tea.

/ scenes from Wuyishan 武夷山 ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ In my grandmother’s living room there used to hang these old taoist landscape paintings and as a child I would stare into them, lost in their timeless natural elegance. Do a web image search if you don’t know what I’m talking about... 🏞 I all but filed the idea of those types of land formations as mere creative embellishments by the painter; as archetypal myths of early humanity at the tops of misty mountaintops; and as an expression of monastic spirituality times and worlds away 🌄 Being in Wuyishan felt like stepping into a dream whose origins stemmed from these surreal impressions that my childhood imagination weaved into those mythic paintings... and holy shit, these land formations actually exist! . More than just psychically moving in this way, one can also intake this dreamscape by way of one of its remarkable ethnobotanies: Tea 🍵 As the touted origin of the Oolong 乌龙 style of processing Camellia sinensis, the tea here is world-renowned. Rock oolong (or Yancha 岩茶) like Da Hong Pao 大红袍, Shui Xian 水仙, Rougui 肉桂, and Hong cha 红茶 like Zhèngshān Xiǎozhǒng 正山小种 (aka Lapsang Souchong), & Jin Jun Mei 金骏眉 styles all originate and are grown intimately in these misted valleys . We spent our days there wandering around the profound scenic areas where these teas are grown and poking our heads into the town’s many tea shops, drinking teas and making friends by the way of our phones’ translator apps, hand gestures, and laughter. . I have some more wuyishan images and stories to share with you soon! ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ ☁️ #wuyishan #yancha #rockoolong #武夷山 #gungfu #gongfu #gongfucha #dahongpao #lapsangsouchong #jinjunmei #shuixian #wuyimountain #wuyi #fujian #cha #tealovers #taoistpainting #oolongcha #wulongcha #camelliasinensis #rougui #tea #bigredrobe #mistymountains #chinaphotography #chineselandscape

Заезжал к давеча к нам в гости большой человек, как минимум в мире чая - Сергей Кошеверов, известный как Хризолит - @sergeikosheverov - человек, чьи знания о биологии, географии, технологиях, ботанике, особенностях и новостях в мире чая поражают и удивляют. Сергея интересно слушать, у Сергея достойно и престижно учится, ведь Сергей Хризолит учитель большинства нынешних учителей-путешественников-продавцов чая, а на счету Сергея около 600 выпускников чайных школ. Несмотря на то, что количество учеников не определяет качество учителя, в данном случае, все ровно наоборот. Выпили в тот день два Шуй Сяня - наш магазинный - сочный, свеженький, сладковато-цветочный и Шуй Сянь от мастера-хранителя технологи Да Хун Пао - Ван Шунь Мина - мощный, крепкий, звучный, с яркими нотами огня и характерной утесной мелодией. Это была по настоящему приятная встреча старых-добрых знакомых, встреча уважаемого гостя и продуктивное общение. Сергей, благодарю! #tealionsfriends #tealions #teacherfriends #chadao #wuyiyancha #yancha #wuyiwulong #tea #cha #chinesetea #tealovers #китайскийчаймойсква

cutechajin. The sun hangs highest in the sky. {As the sun hangs highest overhead t

The sun hangs highest in the sky. {As the sun hangs highest overhead today, marking the Summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, I find myself sitting in my tearoom. This coincides with having just received a collection of tea samples from a tea farmer based in Wuyishan, China. The small, individually-wrapped packets, each contain a different tea, a veritable treasure trove of flavors, each expressing the slight effects the shifting of one season to the next has on the tea plant. Today, celebrating the solstice, I opt for a coppery 肉桂 Ròuguì, the name of which literally translates to “cinnamon”. While I will be brewing the tea hot, the effects of drinking it at the peak of Summer will be slightly cooling. This desire to evoke a sense of “coolness” is revealed in my choice of teaware. An antique porcelain 宝瓶 hōhin (handless teapot) with a touch of 金継ぎ kintsugi (gold lacquer repair). To measure-out the tea leaves, I select an antique 白铜 báitóng (“white copper”) scoop in the shape of a banana leaf. To serve, I select a set of four blue-and-white cups from 景德镇 Jǐngdézhèn, each of which containing a vista reflective of a season. Warming each ceramic vessel, the water brings out their clean, porcelain sheen. Placing the tea leaves atop the báitóng leaf, I admire their uniformity and the rich color they contain. Placed into the warm hōhin, the twisted leaves release a soft, complex flavor. Notes of spices and cacao fill the air. Pouring hot water over the leaves only intensifies the aroma. Once fully steeped, I slowly issue-out the amber liqueur into each cup. Enjoying the deep color, matched with the swirling, nuanced fragrance of tea brings pause to my busy day and a cool calm to the heat of Summer. Silently sipping in my tearoom, I enjoy the unfurling flavors of cinnamon, cloves, wet limestone and black walnut. Subtle, gentle, like the shifting of the seasons. On this, the longest day of the year.} #tea #gongfucha #tealeaves #wuyishan #oolong #yancha #porcelain #antique #ceramics #chinesetea #summersoltice #summer #teatime #meditation #mindfulness #kintsugi #ilovetea #teastagram #茶 #茶道 #茶道具 #功夫茶 #烏龍茶 #岩茶 #武夷山 #茶葉 #茶杯 #景德鎮 #宝瓶 #金継ぎ
