Type: Raw Pu-erh (naturally fermented) Grade: Premium Production area: Jingmai, Simao Prefecture, Yunnan Province
Taste characteristics: During the 1990s, few teas cakes were made entirely from old growth arbor tea trees as compared to the practice today. This tea cake was made entirely from centuries old tea trees in Jingmai Mountain and then aged in Yunnan since production in 1998.
This cake was repackaged and made its debut in China recently and has been much revered. The wonder of this tea begins when you brew it because the aroma of the tea can be detected from afar. The first sip gives you a strong ginseng fragrance, a distinctive bitterness turned bitter sweet. The subsequent brews reveal a combination of stone fruit and sweet Longan (Dragon eye fruit) flavors. This tea is very pure, yet the flavors are so complex. The "Qi" is quite remarkable and relaxing. Drink this tea in the evening, take a deep breath and you cannot help but feel that "life is good."
NOTE: free shipping on sample.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: This aged Pu-erh is best brewed in a small 100cc-150cc Yixing teapot. Use boiling water to make the first two brews. Use slightly cooler water (208F/98C) for subsequent brews. - Pour hot water inside and outside to rinse and warm the teapot. - Fill 1/3 of the teapot with tea leaves pried from the tea cake. - Pour in boiling water (212F/100C) to quickly rinse the leaves. - Discard the water immediately.
Excellent09/27/2021 ByJohn Platt I have yet to experience the Evening Fragrant Jade Raw Pu-erh, as I am saving it for a special day. However, everything I purchase from Bana tea is excellent, which includes service, product availability, and a very user friendly website. The ability to purchase samples of different kinds of Pu-erh is especially helpful. Thank you Our responseThank you so much for the kind words. We appreciate it very much.
