Purchase OptionsQty

Flavor Profile:Crisp with pleasant smokiness and pickled menthol aroma. Ingredients:Compressed Green Pu-er Tea Leaves.
A classic green 'Sheng' style Puer brick made from densely packed, young, silver and gold tipped leaves. This brick has gained a lot of maturity over the years and we have stored it since 2003. The tea leaves are grown in western Yunnan in a region known as Cangyuan, home to a remote tea garden near the Burma-China border.

Similar to wine, Sheng pu-ers change in flavor over time, if storage conditions are conducive. A dark, warm, humid environment and storage in clay jars is ideal for this purpose, as they allow the leaves to 'breathe' and mature.

Limited availabilty.

Size: 5.75" x 4" x 1". Approximately 250 grams. Servings per cake: 75.

Greener pu-er can be enjoyed “Chinese style." Merely place a few leaves at the bottom of a cup or teapot, add hot water, and cover. After a couple of minutes or so the leaf will infuse and sink to the bottom of the vessel allowing you to drink or pour from the top. When the water is down to just over the leaves, simply add more water. This style provides many infusions for a small amount of leaf.
