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!
We have 20g sample sessions available. Each cake is 200 grams. Tong's have 5x 200g cakes sealed in bamboo. We only have a limited amount of tongs for sale.
