Meng Sung Secret Garden Raw Pu'er from 2013

Meng Sung Secret Garden raw Pu'er from 2013. This tea not only refutes the idea that "young Pu'er cannot be drunk" it makes one wonder why bother aging tea at all. Creamy and floral, this tea comes from a secret garden in the famous region of Meng Sung, and we ordered the pressing of our own cakes right after we ate the leaves off the trees (and right after we promised not to tell anyone the location of the forest). The old trees grow in a pristine and bio-diverse environment surrounded by taro, bamboo and camphor trees, with extremely limited access.

Ripe Pu'er Tuo Cha from 2012

Our own 1001plateaus ripe Pu'er Tuo Cha from 2012. Tuo Cha generally has a bad reputation because it's usually made with crappy tea. Our Tuo Cha is excellent Pu'er (picked from large trees) that just happens to be wrapped in little 5 gram pieces. You drop one of these guys into a cup, rinse once and then brew. The flavor is spicy, a slight hint of citrus and woody nuances, and the liquid is thick.

Denong Commemorative Raw Pu'er from 2016

It's often said that the brewing of a good tea is a celebration in itself. But sometimes commemorative pucks are needed, and this is Denong's raw Pu'er (100g) from 2016 and it's crazy smooth with an aroma and thick body that will only get better with age.

Sweet Clarity Raw Pu'er from 2016

So young and yet already so floral and thick. It has an incredible finish and long sweet aftertaste that is surprising for teas of this vintage. (100g).

Brewing tips: Rinse 5 grams tea for a few seconds with water (90°C / 190°F), and discard the rinse, then add more water to brew, and after 5 to 10 seconds pour the tea into a separate cup to drink. By pouring off the tea you can reuse the leaves for subsequent rounds, by adding more water and gradually increasing the steeping time.
