DESCRIPTION

1996 vintage Dark 7581 Puerh brick tea – Typically, material that was used to produce Puerh “brick” teas are picked for its strong flavor profile and abundant amount of earthiness. This 1996 version is now displaying a unique sandal wood-like earthiness but with a viscosity that is unusual even for well-aged dark puerhs. The finish is long and insistent without a trace of harshness. Our cupping shows that it is important to use fresh and clean tasting water to bring out all of its nuances. Low quality water seems to affect this tea more than usual.

GROWING REGION

Yunnan, China: With abundant rainfall, mild climate, and fertile land, Yunnan Province has ideal conditions for tea cultivation and is known as the historical birthplace of medicinal teas.

BREWING SUGGESTIONS

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. Gongfu tea-brewing techniques are recommended for more advanced tea lovers. We suggest using a mid-sized Yixing teapot with thinner walls. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
