Philip Lee of ‘Yiwu Mountain Tea’ is an Scottish expat living in Guangzhou with family ties to a tea farm in Gao Shan ‘Yiwu’. We took a visit to see him and his wife at their shop in Guangzhou on our recent 2017 tea trip. Philip is extremely knowledgeable in Yiwu area tea and has endless passion for Gu Shu. We were blown away by his offerings as i’m sure you will be too! Expect to see a lot more from Yiwu M T in the near future!

This cake is a blend of Yiwu area Gu shu material from different regions. The 5 years rest in Guangdong has kicked out most of the bitterness and contributed sweetness and a perfect amount of storage taste to this tea making it an interesting and unique gu shu experience. When brewing together with Philip in Guangzhou this tea offered a long returning sweetness and was very infusible, it surpassed 20 steeps with ease.

    I am not a Pu’erh tea expert by any standards but I have tried a few since becoming a tea enthusiast in the last couple of years so take what you will from my review.
    This is a very solid tea in my opinion. It contains all of the plummy, strawberry notes you could hope for with a smoky medicinal aroma and an ooze of vanilla on the end. A very autumnal brew.
    With very little bitterness coming through this is a smooth and yet rich tea that I find quite luxurious. The price doesn’t lie.
