Spring 2018 "Beneath an Emerald Sea" Sheng / Raw Puerh from Crimson Lotus Tea
We have re-crafted this classic blend. Traveling through Southern Yunnan each Spring is a beautiful part of what we do. South of the Tropic of Cancer the rich green forested hills of Yunnan look like a rolling emerald sea during. Drinking this tea is like swimming in that ocean of flavor and aroma. It's fantastic.
This is a fantastic tea. It is vibrant with youthful energy and brews thick and juicy. It's both floral and fruity with an occasional note similar to unsweetened baking chocolate. There is bitterness but it balances with sweetness. This tea has stamina and can brew for a long time.

"Beneath an Emerald Sea is a well-balanced tea with pleasing notes of floral, sweet fruits, and bitterness. The early and middle infusions are tasty, sporting a thick texture and long aftertaste."
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.
