Purple Pu-er Tea - Sheng


Product Description

Our Purple Pu’er is an aged raw pu’er from 2009. Our Purple Pu’er is unique not only by its appearance of long, lightly rolled needle like black/brown leaves with a few streaks of blue. But also the tea’s liquor is a soft rose colour. After steeping the leaves turn to a brilliant blue colour and unravel a little more with each steep. This medium bodied brew has a complex flavour, hints of chocolate, vanilla with the tartness of raspberries and a bit of white wine. This heavenly smooth tea also has base notes of oak making it a amazing cup.

Type: Raw(Sheng)

Other Names: Zi Juan Pu-er

Region: Jingmai Tea Mountain, Puer City, Yunnan Province.

Steeping Guide:

Teaware: Yixing Teapot or Ceramic Gaiwan

Amount: 3g /1½ teaspoons

Temperature: 100°c (212°F)

Steeping Time: We suggest that you rinse your tea leaves before enjoying them, simply add water to the leaves and discard. This wakes them up and they are ready to go. For your first steep, we suggest a 30-50 second steep. For the second steep 10 seconds is best, simply add 5 seconds to each of your next steeps. This will allow you to experience the full range of tastes the leaves have to offer.

*These steeping directions are for a traditional Gong Fu style tea, if you are brewing this tea in a regular cup we recommend steeping for 2 – 3 minutes. This tea can be steeped 4 times.
