2016 "Cloudy Days" Shou / Ripe Puerh 200g Cake :: Seattle Inventory
In 2014 we created a shou puerh blend called Cloudy Days and it was quite a hit. This is the new blend of that tea. The original inspiration for this blend was the 2006 "Kunlu Mountain Tribute Tea". That was the first shou puerh we ever sold! This is a blend of material from 2016, grown and processed in Simao.
This tea is nutty and earthy with strong mineral notes and is so very sweet. It has everything we came to love in the "Kunlu Mountain Tribute Tea" shou. This tea is ready to drink now, but with a few years of aging it will be extra awesome.
We named this tea "Cloudy Days" because of the common factor between Yunnan and Seattle: cloudy weather. The name Yunnan literally means "Southern Clouds". The clouds on the wrapper are typical of the designs used by Yunnan minorities. We hope this tea is a perfect companion for whichever day you choose to brew it; cloudy days or not!
Use 5-10 grams of leaves and brew with 75-150ml ( 2.5-5oz ) of water at or near boiling. Rinse twice for a few seconds each. Start with quick steeps under 10s. With each re-steep adjust the steep time to your taste.
Because this tea is so affordable we are not offering samples.
This will be shipped from Seattle via USPS. Rates are calculated during checkout based on weight.
