About 2010 Cangyuan Shou:
A 2010 Shou Puer from Cangyuan. Cangyuan is a remote, old growth region in Yunnan, China.
For best flavor, puer tea must undergo some aging. If aged well over a period of years, a puer tea will become more and more pleasant, with some of its strong notes mellowing out nicely over time. We have found Portland to be an excellent environment for aging puer bing cha. The aging environment requires fresh air, moderate to warm temperatures, and humidity so that the tea will further ferment over time.
Ingredients: Puer Tea Leaves.
Weight: 250 grams.
Size: 6″ x 4″ x 1″.
Dark, smooth brew with no astringency.
Every tea is different and can be brewed in different ways. The chart below is not a hard-and-fast guide for brewing this tea, but rather a place to get started. Steeping time may vary based on your personal taste or on how many infusions have already been done. Experiment with the brewing of your tea to discover its unique character.
Brewing the tea brick is fairly simple. Break off a small piece (equal to the size of a teaspoon), and brew as you would with loose leaf tea.
