Luo Teji Shu Cha (2018)

Shu Puer «Luo Teji» («Top grade») from Luo tea farm (Menghai County, harvest 2018).

In appearance: small, flagellum twisted reddish-brown tips. The aroma is restrained, nutty. The infusion is dark chestnut-red.

The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature, nutty-and-woody, with notes of bread and autumn leaves. The aroma is warm and viscous, nutty; in the cold aroma you can hear notes of watermelon and baked chestnuts. The taste is full-bodied and mellow, sweetish, a bit astringent, with light coffee bitterness.

Steep the tea in a hot water (95°C) in a gaiwan or a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 6-7 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 10 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1 second) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 8 times.

Shu Puer “Luo Teji” is a good choice for daily tea breaks: warm, smooth and mellow.
