Blended Puerh Brick
Blended Puerh Brick

Price: $20.00


The combination of Shou Cha (dark fermented Puerh, sometimes also called "finished" Puerh) leaves with a small amount of Sheng Cha (un-fermented variety of Puerh, sometimes called "unfinished" puerh) for increased complexity and added flavors results in an astonishingly balanced tea with the added liveliness and fragrance unique to good quality sun-dried green Puerh. This is a must-try new Puerh Tea for collectors and newcomers alike.

Pre-warm a standard gaiwan (covered tea cup); fill with 3 grams of tea, leave uncovered and steep in 80-90C water for 2-3 minutes. Drain the tea into a second cup to avoid over-steeping. Adjust quantity of leaves and steeping time according to personal preference. Gong fu tea-brewing techniques are recommended for more advanced tea lovers. We suggest using a mid-sized Yixing teapot with thinner walls.

2 of 5 Would be better if aged June 4, 2017
Reviewer: Cameron from Los Gatos, CA United States  
This puerh isn't desirable to me in its current state.  I find that the sheng doesn't mix well with the shou, and that it certainly does not make for a balanced cup. Maybe this tea would taste okay once the sheng has been aged, but I wouldn't choose to drink it as it is now.

4 of 5 Good stand-by tea November 5, 2014
Reviewer: ROBERT STEWART from Milton, WA United States  
I have bought this blended Puerh Brick a number of times over the years, and always found it to be good modestly priced tea. I keep it as a stand-by puerh for when the more expensive teas run out!
