2017 "Storm Breaker" Shou / Ripe Puerh from Crimson Lotus Tea
This is an incredible example of very high quality shou made by true craftsmen. This is from a small batch wodui composed entirely of old tree material from the Menghai area. This tea pushes the envelope for what a shou puerh experience can be. There is a depth of experience possible in this tea that will at once confuse and excite you. This is a special tea.
This material finished the wodui process in the Spring of 2017. It was pressed in late Summer of 2017. This tea presents a very dense cup. It can be a little overwhelming when brewed with a heavy hand. We suggest washing this tea 2-4 times.
Albert Bierstadt was an American landscape painter. This cake features a painting he made in 1870 detailing the Pacific Northwest coastline near our home in Seattle. The painting is called "Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast".
Each tong is bamboo wrapped by hand and contains five 200g cakes.
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.
