This tea is harvested and produced in Meng Hai’s Nan Nuo Shan area, a region which boasts centuries-old tea trees. It’s teas are famously sweet and soothing. Teas from Nan Nuo Shan have been the darling of Cantonese Puerh tea drinkers for over a century; the smooth earthiness of the region’s teas pair exceptionally well with Cantonese favorites like dim sum and seafood. This is another great selection that is ready to be enjoyed now, but also makes a great addition to a growing Puerh collection.
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.
Puerh teas, in general, are rather strong in nature but that doesn’t mean you will always need boiling water to brew a great cup. In our cupping experience, we used near boiling water for quick successive brewing. Steeping time is always subject to how much tea you use and how much intensity you want in your tea. For higher intensity, use near boiling or boiling water for slightly longer steeping time, Increase intensity further by using more tea. To taste more of the subtle flavors and floral and fruity notes, use lower temperature water for longer steepings. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
