Description

This is a Sheng Pu er tea, which means that it’s loose leaf “raw” pu er. This tea can be aged and you can see how the profile changes over time. If you are new to Pu er you need to try a Sheng Mao Cha as a benchmark for the rest of your experience. I suggest you try a little bit and then leave the rest in the bag in a cupboard for a couple of years and try it again ;)

From Wikipedia on pu-erh teas: Pu’erh is generally expected to be served Gongfu style, generally in Yixing teaware or in a type of Chinese teacup called a gaiwan. Optimum temperatures are generally regarded to be around 95 °C for lower quality pu’erhs and 85–89 °C for good ripened and aged raw pu’erh. The tea is steeped for 12 to 30 seconds in the first few infusions, increasing to 2 to 10 minutes in the last infusions. The prolonged steeping sometimes used in the west can produce dark, bitter, and unpleasant brews. Quality aged pu’erh can yield many more infusions, with different flavor nuances when brewed in the traditional Gong-Fu method.
