1999 Aged Shou Tuo Cha
$100.00 — available on subscription
Vintage 1999 aged “shou” or “dark” tuo Cha – The holiday is the perfect time to give someone (or yourself) the well-deserved gift of aged puerh. This Tuo Cha has just aged enough in our warehouse to exhibit that trademark rich flavor and the smooth texture only found in well-aged Puerh, without a hint of over bearing earthiness or unwanted astringencies. Ready to drink now, but only will get better with time.
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.
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.
