Dark and soothing. Earthy without being overpowering. An excellent tea after a large evening meal. I also find that Shou puerhs do not keep me up at night like a pot of green tea. I received four infusions now, and I’m sure there’s another 10 in these leaves.
Chi Tse Bing Cha
A large “cooked” pu-er processed through special fermentation, aging, steaming and compressing. Following fermentation, the leaves are pressed into discs called bing cha which are the most popular form of pressed pu-er in China. This variety is particularly quenching, even down to the roots of the body, and has a deeply nourishing texture.
