2019 'Psychotropical' Raw Pu-Erh Tea

Regular price

'Psychotropical' is a raw (sheng) puer from Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. Per our typical spiel, the material comes from plants in good growing conditions, which means we're talking high biodiversity and a non-interventional agricultural approach (i.e. no pesticides and whatnot). This ain't no industrial plantation rubbish.

The maocha was harvested in the Spring of 2018 and aged loose for a year before being pressed, making this tea a lot stronger and easier to drink than many of our fresher teas.

Overall this raw pu-erh tea has quite a fruity, juicy character, with a good amount of sweetness, a nice aftertaste, and no overwhelming bitterness or astringency. A tea with plenty going on, and loosely compressed enough that it's easy to break apart with your hands.

The art was a special commission from Melbourne artist Joe Baker, aka Bakedlab.

Spring 2018 material, 200g cakes, 5 cakes per bamboo-wrapped tong.
