2013 Bulang "Private Order" shou puerh
This ripe puerh was produced as a private order for Ming Shan tea house in Yunnan back in 2013. The leaves were harvested from Bulang mountain just on the border with Birma. Usually, most leaves from Bulang are made into raw puerh as it fetches a higher price on the market and thus it is always exciting to find a nice ripe puerh from the area. Bulang is known for its notoriously bitter tea, however, this tea being processed as a ripe puerh, the bitterness has subdued, leaving just the full bodied feel and famous strength of Bulang. Smooth, deep and dark. Hints of dark chocolate.
Brewing tips: 5 grams of tea per 200ml 100C water. Rinse the tea, 1st steeping 1-2min, 2nd steeping 1-2min, 3rd steeping 2min etc.
