Tiny Tin of Jiangcheng - 2014 Sheng Puerh Tea
This is a 10g sample of tea we sourced on our first sourcing trip. These tins were originally sold in a set. We had a lot of this tin left over and are making it available for sale now. It is small arbor tree Spring material from Jiangcheng.
Jiangcheng ( pronounced 'jong chung' ) is right on the northern border of Vietnam. The region is home to both the Hani and Yi minorities. Jiangcheng is the start of the Wuliang mountain range that extends all the way to the Himalayas. The farmers in Longtan Village live simply and have a deep appreciation for nature. The hills rise steeply from the village and are filled with tea trees.
This is a generous tea and can be brewed more than 10 times. 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.
