Shu Puer «San Ji» («The third grade») from Lincang County, harvest 2018.
In appearance: medium-sized flagellum twisted dark brown leaves and their fragments, thin cuttings. The aroma is intensive, nutty with a smoky note. The infusion is transparent with a chestnut-red shade.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature, nutty-and-woody, with notes of baked chestnut, ripe leaves and dried fruits. The aroma is deep and viscous, nutty. The taste is rich and mellow, sweetish, with a soft woody astringency, sourness of dried berries and velvety finish.
Steep the tea in a hot water (95°C) in a gaiwan or a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 6-8 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 10 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 2-3 seconds) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 7 times.
Shu Puer « San Ji» is a good choice to boost your daytime energy: rich, bright, invigorating.
