2019 'RESPITE FOR THE DAMNED' Ripe Puer
The long awaited version 2.0 of our previous much-loved ripe puer (pu-erh). We've added some extra material to give a touch more bitterness.
It's been a long day, siphoning secret data from a Megacorp, followed by a run-in with a street gang. Chopping heads, avoiding the pigs; and you got android blood on your new jacket. Damn.
What you need, is to unwind. Relax.
Take a sip of this high-end blend of ripe puer, made from small, private-batch, material. This tea represents the best ripe tea material we've hoarded over the past couple of years, meticulously combined to make something greater than the sum of its parts.
This puer tea has an uncommonly strong and sweet fragrance, with a heavy, luxurious body and distinct warming sweetness. Kick off your boots, rest those tired eyes, and slip into this silky, smooth, shu puer.

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.
