Shu puer “Crouching Tiger, hidden Dragon” was made of raw materials from Bada Mountain (Menghai County) harvest 2019.
357-gram cake of medium density consists of pressed brown leaves with thin cuttings and reddish tips. The aroma is restrained, woody-and-nutty. The infusion is dark, reddish-chestnut.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature, nutty, with notes of wood resins and dried fruits. The aroma is deep and warm, nutty-balsamic. The taste is rich and mellow, a bit tart, sweetish, with a juicy bitterness, spicy nuances and velvety finish.
Steep the tea in 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 15 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 3-5 second) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 8 times.
“Crouching Tiger, hidden Dragon” is a right choice to boost your daytime energy.
