In appearance: 406 g teacake of medium density, broken effortlessly with fingers into large lengthwise twisted brown leaves and buds with thin stems. The aroma is restrained, woody-balsamic. The infusion is transparent, light chestnut colour.
The brewed tea has a mature, multifaceted bouquet with notes of wood and wild herbs, dried fruits and camphor. The aroma is deep, complex, fruity-balsamic. The taste is smooth and refined, sweetish, with delicate berry acidity, transforming into sappy finish.
Brewing suggestions. Brew tea with hot boiling water (95°C) in a gaiwan or a teapot for Raw Puer made of porous clay. The proportion is 5 g per 100 ml. The first infusion should last for 8-10 seconds. After that do short brews (just for 1 second), increasing exposure time for each subsequent brewing, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 12 times.
Best choice for rare Raw Puer сonnoisseurs – soft and refined, calming, meditative.
