2017 "Stargazer" Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea
The Puerh Yunniverse is a fascinating place. We've been real excited for this tea. This has been a long term project for us. We worked with artist and puerh tea lover M. L. Macdonald @alchemichael who created a custom piece for this tea.
This tea is made with Autumn small arbor tree material from Hekai that was picked and processed in 2017. The full wrapper features a star-field that matches the night sky at the tea garden when this tea was picked. If you are in Hekai in Autumn and hold this wrapper to the night sky these are the stars you'll see.
This tea presents a traditional sheng experience with plenty of hay, alfalfa, and sweet grass aroma. There is a floral finish and sweet aftertaste. The sweetness is balanced with a mild bitterness.

"This tea packs a punch but in a really nice way. I would particularly recommend it for those that are fairly new to sheng and looking to explore more."
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.
