Full Description

This shu Pu Erh (cooked Pu Erh) comes from old tea trees (roughly 300 to 400 years old) in Xi Shuang Ban Na, Yun Nan. It is produced by a small tea farm in the area located deep in the mountain at elevation roughly 1700m/5577ft. The family is from a local minority ethnic tribe called "Dai Zu". Even though it is only almost three years old, it already has a rich dark thick liquor with layers of aroma, and can be steeped multiple times. Shu Pu Erh tea is known for aiding digestion and promoting probiotic in guts, hence makes a perfect everyday tea and every occasion tea. This young shu Pu Erh also holds a collective value

Origin

Xi Shuang Ban Na, Yunan, China

Brewing Instruction

Gai wan or ceramic pot
Add 5gram/1 tbsp
100 C / 212 F

 

Ceramic Teapot:

  • Add 8oz water and infuse for 3 min.
  • Repeat for another 5+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 1 minute with each additional infusion

Gai Wan:

  • Rinse leaves and discard the first infusion
  • add water and infuse for 10 seconds for 2 infusions
  • Repeat for another 8+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 10 seconds with each additional infusion 

    We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
