2018 'PRESCRIPTION ONLY' Raw Puer
PRESCRIPTION ONLY is a raw (sheng) puer comprised of spring 2017 material that we aged loose for a year in Yunnan, before pressing in spring 2018.
This is a strong tea. There is a hefty amount of upfront bitterness, that takes many steeps to fade. The sweetness rises to match, especially in late steeps. Perhaps not the tea best for beginners.
This material has an excellent track record for long term ageing. What many would consider a classical Menghai profile.
Due to limited production, there are no samples available.
Each cake is 200g, with 5 cakes per tong.
Looser compression than our VECTOR or RHIZOME raw puer cakes.

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.
