This dry storaged, Ripe (Shou) Emeperor's Pu Erh, is a blending made out of just small tender leaves, and was produced by the Meng Hai Factory, in Xixuangbanna. Kept and stored entirely in sealed urns, this Pu Erh has a very clean aroma and flavor profile. Compared to the very strong, earthy, soil, and compost flavors of a wet stored Pu Erh, from the very momment you smell this dry stored Pu Erh, you will notice a nice sweet and strong fruit like aroma, without being too earthy, smoky, or compost like.
The tea broth has the flavor profiles and aromas of sweet haw flakes, passion fruit, roses, followed with a clean and lingering sweet aftertaste.
Origin: Menghai, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province
We recommend using Chinese Yixing (purple clay) or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.
