Chinese Dark Tea
This Raw(uncooked) loose-leaf pu-erh is made of high quality raw material. It is fresh, clean. The aroma is strong and grassy.
Since it is a newly aged tea, it is very ideal for personal collecting and storing.
The harsh and bitter taste, strongly grassy aroma is the rich feature of this tea.
However, we do not recommend this tea to new drinkers of raw(uncooked) pu-erh. Because it is hardmouthed restive and requires very careful control over the steeping time and water temperature.
We have made this video to introduced how to steep it with a Yixing purple clay teapot, it also applicable for a Gaiwan style steeping.
*KEY*---Steep it quickly(less than 20 secs) with a high water temperature(above 95°C or 203°F)
