"Jade Rabbit" Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea Blend from Crimson Lotus Tea
We are very excited to offer this tea! We created this multi year, multi mountain blend in 2017 but were very particular about the ratio used. We wanted to make sure that each cake was blended by hand to ensure the correct experience. Most factories blend in a giant pile on the floor with pitchforks. That is not satisfactory for our needs. You have no guarantee that what ends up in a specific cake is an accurate blend. It could be all one material. We weren't able to press this last year because we couldn't find a factory willing to work with us on this special project.
This year we found a new factory and guided them through the process of hand blending each cake before pressing. It was time consuming, tedious, and demanding work but the result is impressive.
This is a complex tea that creates a story through the many steepings. Explore this tea beyond 15 steeps and you will be rewarded. This tea has energy, depth, body, incredible aroma, a thick sweetness, and a long lingering aftertaste. This is not a blend that we will be able to recreate. What we pressed in this batch is all that we will ever have.
Each tong is bamboo wrapped by hand and contains five 200g cakes. There is a 10% discount if you buy a tong. Just for fun, if you buy a cake you get a Jade Rabbit sticker too!
Use 5-10 grams of leaves and brew with 75-150ml ( 2.5-5oz ) of water at or near boiling. Rinse once for a few seconds. Start with quick steeps under 10s. With each re-steep adjust the steep time to your taste.
