Brewing Suggestions
 

This cake is produced from early spring-harvested white tippy green puerh from the Nan Nuo Shan region of Southern Yunnan province. Nan Nuo Shan boasts a history of growing tea for about 1700 years and was the home of many old-growth tea trees. This Nan Nuo Shan Puerh Cake (or Bing Cha) is almost completely covered with mature white tips, attractive to the eyes and exuding layers of mouth-watering fragrances.

It has everything you could ask for in a green unfinished Puerh: apricot-like fruitiness with hints of spring meadow; a gentle, woodsy smokiness that adds character and body; and concentrated, mouth-filling viscosity. The Nan Nuo Shan Puerh Cake is suitable for drinking now as well as for aging under dry conditions (in areas of low humidity).

We highly recommend that you add this superb tea to your collection.

PREPARATION:

The compressed and large-leaf nature of this green Puerh requires hot water to fully extract its flavors. We recommend using a standard 6 oz. gaiwan (do not pre-warm gaiwan); fill with 3-5 grams of leaves, cover with lid, and steep in near-boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Adjust steeping time, temperature, and quantity of leaves according to your personal preference. A few trials may be needed to find your own "comfort" level. Remember to drain your tea into another vessel to avoid over-steeping.
