Meng Song Raw Pu'er from 2017 (Autumn)

Mengsong raw Pu'er from 2017. This tea comes from the famous area of Mengsong but picked in the fall so the classic floral and orchid flavors have been hushed by a quiet breeze. It is drinkable now, but will age into an incredible tea.

We pressed the tea in 100 gram pucks so they're awfully cute and easy to carry around.

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.

What's the deal with Pu'er?
