2014 Bang Wei Loose Leaf

This is a lovely old tree, or da shu, loose puerh, with a complex floral and woody flavor. Full-bodied and bold, this brew yields notes of bitter greens, rose, and honey. 

Origin: Bang Wei, Puer City (Simao) Prefecture, Yunnan Province - Spring Harvest 

Brewing Instructions:

Rinsing the leaves:  It is common to rinse the leaves before steeping, as this helps remove any smaller particles of leaf or dust. Using hot water, steep the tea for no more than 10 seconds. Strain the water from the leaves. The tea is then ready to brew with new water. 

  • 1 tsp per 8oz/250ml of water 
  • 195ºF/90ºC  (Bring fresh, cold spring water to a boil. Remove from heat, set aside 1 minute, and proceed.) 
  • Brew 4-7 minutes 
  • Good for 2-3 infusions
