Yiwu 2006 Raw Pu'er -100g
All the way from 2006, this Yiwu mini-brick raw is gentle and mild. Spring-picked 2006 leaf from old arbor trees (100 to 300 yrs old) and treated with great care in processing.
Thick and bright tea soup with refreshing results for the body - sweet, mildly floral and a wonderful aftertaste. It's Garret's mom's favorite raw pu'er tea right now.
The bamboo sheath wrap contains two, 50gram mini-bricks.
Basic Brewing Instructions:
- Raw Pu'er tea may be given a 5-10 second rinse (Ripe Pu'er may be given two 5-10 second rinses) with the same temperature water as used for brewing.
- 195˚-212˚ F water temperature.
- Use 1-3 teaspoons per 8 Oz. of filtered water.
- Recommended first steeping of 30 seconds - 1 minute. Add 30 seconds for each subsequent infusion.
Tea brewing is meant to be a joyful exploration. There are no hard and fast rules. Experiment with the quantity of tea that you use, and steeping times. Enjoy discovering what your preferences are. They may change day to day.
Tip: We like to warm the gaiwan or yixing with boiling water first and when it is thoroughly hot, pour the water out and place the dry leaf inside and cover for a moment. As the leaf is gently warmed by the heated vessel, you will experience aromas you might have otherwise missed. As the tea cools, look for subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) changes in what you smell.
