Tiny Tin of Yiwu - 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 Yiwu.
Yiwu ( pronounced 'E-Woo' ) is a very large tea growing area. You could spend an entire decade exploring Yiwu and not experience all of the diversity of tea in this area. The tea from this region was an Imperial Tribute tea to the Chinese Emperor. Yiwu village was a traditional gathering place for the entire area. Tea brought to here begun a long journey on the Tea Horse Road to places as far away as Tibet and Beijing. The tea in this tin was harvested from a tea garden surrounded by flowering trees that give off a deep floral aroma. The tea has absorbed this unique aroma.
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.
