2014 'INFINITE REGRESS' Raw Puer
I drink the tea you drink I drink you drink the tea I drink we drink the tea the tea the tea.
We scored a small amount of slightly aged raw puer maocha (loose tea) from spring 2014, and pressed it in 2019.
It has been very cleanly stored by the farmer in Xishuangbanna, leaving a good amount of character development, but with no humid or off notes.
The tea itself is smooth, soft, and sweet, with a touch of underlying bitterness and a deceptive amount of strong body feeling. Some sweeter floral and slight fruity flavours are beginning to surface.
The material is from older trees in an excellent forest environment, and a less famous provenance keeps the price lower than teas from hyped areas.
Each cake is 200g, 5 cakes per bamboo wrapped tong.

We recommend approx 1g of tea per 15ml of water for Gongfu-style brewing in a teapot or gaiwan. Rinse the leaves once and then brew several times until there is no flavour left.
For Western-style brewing in a larger teapot, use approx. 5g per 100ml of water. You can re-brew the leaves a few times.
To brew direct in a mug, use 1-2g of tea in the bottom of the cup, fill with boiling water, and drink once cool. Re-fill the cup with more water when you've drunk 1/3rd of the tea. Repeat until there is no more flavour left.
All of our teas are suitable for long-term storage and aging.
Keep your tea away from sunlight and strong smells, and somewhere with stable climate conditions.
You can keep it sealed inside the re-usable bag the tea comes in, or another non-porous container.
