Superior Shou Puerh
$27.00 – $81.00 — available on subscription
The small twisted leaves and abundance of bright golden tips which make up our Superior Puerh produce an exceptional connoisseur’s tea whose distinctive dark amber liquor beautifully combines the lighter and darker sides of Puerhs. Here we find the sweetly crisp astringency characteristic of a younger Puerh tea attractively balanced with the smoother mellowness brought out by careful aging.
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.
Superior Puerh may be brewed in a variety of ways, including with an ordinary teapot, individual Gaiwans or in a small Yixing pot. Allow approximately one teaspoon of leaf per person. Infuse with near boiling water for 1-3 minutes depending on desired strength. The finished tea will be anywhere from dark red to completely black in color. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
