2019 'DISSOLVER' Raw Puer
'Dissolver' is a raw puer blended from material across several areas of Yunnan province, China.
Probably our most balanced sheng (raw puer) of 2019. Not overly pulled in one direction, the tea starts soft and with an emphasis on thick and smooth mouthfeel. Rising bitterness and complexity through middle steeps give way to an increasingly sweet and oily aftertaste in the late steeps. Lots going on, and this tea represents some of the best value high-quality material we collected from some of our favourite areas. Put together as something greater than the sum of the component parts by themselves. Good body feels, nice and floaty.
Spring 2019 material, 200g cakes, 5 cakes per bamboo wrapped tong. Loose compression.

Three legends got lip tattoos! See below. We will not honour anymore this year.
We need high quality visual proof. Video/photo of the tattoo in action, and a high photo of it being shown off once healed. The photos will be used for future wrappers.

Use boiling water (100C).
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.
