The New Black: Pu’er Black Tea (Shou Ripe Pu’er Tea) 100g Cake
This is an aged tea that was then compressed into a cake after undergoing some wonderful fermentation and developing some delicious flavor notes that are not common in a Ripe Pu’er. This tea is known for its health benefits and its unique and pleasant flavors.
This is not a “forest floor dank mushroom” Pu’er, it is much more fruity and bold with the flavor of dried berries or prunes. You will be shocked with how wonderful a Ripe Pu’er can be once you try this.
This tea has matured to perfection since it was picked back in the Spring of 2012. As we know, Pu’er only gets better with time, and this tea is a wonderful example of that. This tea was picked in Spring of 2012 and left to age until 2013. It was then lightly fermented over 4 months in order to carry the fresh tea taste while still bringing a wonderful earthy character. The aroma is very sweet like dried apricots and the liquor is the color of Rosé wine. The tea can can be brewed at boiling temperatures or cold brewed, and everything in-between. The tea is low in caffeine so it is okay to drink before bed and has a nice energy to it that helps relax the body. Easy to brew upwards of 15 pots of tea from one small serving of this tea.
