From Crimson Lotus Tea

We’ve watched with great interest the past few years as quality shou puerh reached near unimaginable levels. Shou puerh teas like “Black Gold”, and “Storm Breaker” showed what is possible when high quality origin material meets with impeccable wodui processing. This is a next level tea!

The primary material used in this tea is from old trees growing in Yiwu’s Gao Shan Zhai village. This is first Spring picking material. A small amount of ‘Xiao Qiao Mu’ small arbor tree material was blended in.

This tea starts with aromas of deep earthiness. It’s like you just spent the morning working with your hands in the garden. As you begin to steep there is an aroma like the wind after a forest rain. This tea brews creamy, smooth, and thick. There is some bitterness after the second steep. There is a juicy mouthfeel that persists. As you progress through the steeps this tea becomes sweet like brown sugar and has a throat cooling that is almost minty.

This tea is not just unique it is incredibly rare. This material will not be pressed into cakes. We have been looking for extra special shou puerh that really stands out. This is one of those teas. We have just 1kg to sell. We have taken what we have and created 8g single session experiences. We want as many people as possible to be able to try this tea.

8 grams is enough for one regular sized session or you could split it up into two 4g sessions if you have a smaller tea brewing vessel.

This is a tea worth experiencing. Drink it with your whole heart. Share your session with others if you can!

There is a discount if you buy more than one session.

We recommend brewing this tea gongfu style with a 1g:15ml ratio of leaf to water. Do a flash rinse just once and then start with steep of 8s and increase from there as the tea requires.
