Shu Puer “Wondrous” is made from the raw materials harvested in Menghai County.
100-gram cake of medium density consists of twisted brown leaves, thin cuttings and reddish buds. The aroma is restrained, woody-balsamic. The infusion is dark, reddish-brown.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature, woody with notes of nuts, spicy herbs, dried fruits and rotten autumn leaves. The aroma is deep and warm, complex, nutty with a woody accent. The taste is rich, tart, sweetish, with a juicy bitterness, sourness of dried berries, nuances of spices and a 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 10 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1-2 second) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea 9 times.
“Wondrous” is an excellent choice to boost your daytime energy.
