Type: Raw Pu-erh Tea (unfermented) Grade: 1-3 Production area: Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province
Taste characteristics: If you are looking for a good value raw Pu-erh that is made from quality base material and has good aging potential, look no further. Made with early spring leaves from arbor trees, this tea is thick, full-bodied and smooth. From the aroma of the dry leaves, to the well-balanced flavors and the fragrance lingering at the bottom of the cup, this tea represents a well-blended and well-crafted tea. This tea offers quick "hui gan" (return sweetness) and comfortable "qi" (energy). It is with great anticipation that 2016 Commemorative Raw will age to an excellent tea in a few years. Stock up while the price is low.
Available in individual cakes or a 10-cake tung of 2016 Commemorative Raw Pu-erh inside attractive packaging.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: Use 4-5g of leaves per 6 ounces of water. Rinse the leaves once with hot water (195 degree F) and discard the water. Start steeping with water at 190º F and brew according to the recommended steeping time below.
Really nice02/22/2022 ByWoody W. Awesome flavor, I brew it pretty heavy handed and it seems to just come out rounder and more bold, it does not seem to mind high leaf ratio or longer steeps. Also I like the picking quality. The cake is compressed perfectly for me, breaks apart nicely and leaves stay intact.
When I am away from home visiting friends or family, I will bring this tea because the large intact leaves are good for grandpa style brewing i think or more western style, they will not make a mess!
This tea also makes me feel clarified or balanced or something, never feel buzzy or uncomfortable.
I have heard that puer in the "adolescent years" like between 5-10 years old is no good, I have not experienced that especially not with this tea! Our responseHow tea ages depend a lot on the quality of the leaves. High-quality teas never have a bad phase. Thanks for the glowing review.
Aging well09/06/2021 ByScott Bond This raw puerh from 2016 is a very high quality tea. Made with leaves from older trees and processed in a very clean environment under expert supervision. The tea is smooth, excellent mouth and throat feeling and comfortable in the body. For a tea at this price point, it remains a very good opportunity to drink as well as age for many years to come. Our responseScott, I agree with you totally. Thank you for your expert opinion.
