2022 "Night Shift" Shou / Ripe Puerh Tea
Smoke and mirrors! If you've never had a late night session with a dark brewing shou like this you are missing out. There is a magic in the cup that is hard to describe. The impenetrable black liquid releases a dancing white cloud. The obsidian darkness of night is what you'll find in a cup of this tea. Explore the mysteries of Tezcatlipoca as you steep.
The Aztec deity of night and war featured on this cake is a custom piece of art from Jose Rodriguez III. He is a local Seattle artist and does incredible work. Be sure to check him out:
This is a super creamy tea. It brews dark with an almond nuttiness and just a hint of a floral aroma. It's not too thick but has a well rounded body in the mouth. There is a bitterness that teases you but melts right away into a caramel sweetness. Smooth drinking chocolate and nuttiness defines this tea. Lovely stuff!
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.
