No. 103, Bao Shan Bai Ya, Sheng (raw), Old Tree, Spring Harvest



A rare and delightful offering: early-spring harvested golden buds from ancient trees (gu shu) deep within Yunnan Province.  The downy puerh buds produce a clear, refreshing brew with delicate notes of sweet, fresh hay that give way to a suggestion of aged leather and hops.  An intriguing mineral, if somewhat flinty finish, lingers on the palate.

Brewing Instructions:

Amount: 1 tsp per 8oz/250ml of water 

Water Temperature: 155ºF/80ºC

Bring fresh, cold spring water to a boil.

Brew 4-6 minutes

All puerh may enjoy multiple infusions; for each successive steep, slightly increase brewing time, being careful to drain vessel in it’s entirety before adding fresh water to the warm leaves.
