Minis often are less about the fine tasting experience as they are about getting oneself the power of pu-er. Such is the case with this mini, but among my collection this one stands out for its funk factor.

Now don’t get it twisted, I’m not talking about rank fishiness. I’ve landed at least one of those too. No, this has something to do with a certain intentionality, a boldness by the maker to have the fermentation find clear expression.

This pu-er brews rich and thick. Cha-qi is about a 6.5. Has an exceptional ability to calm the liver.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more

Bio

I’ve been drinking Chinese tea since the early 90s when I was a student in at Peking University.
Being most fond of Yunnan, though I did fancy Guizhou on my last visit in ‘13, I’ve focused my attention on pu’ers, ripe and raw.
I love all of the artistry that surrounds this powerful leaf.
