2020 'Dark Red' Chinese Black Tea
Brain accelerant - now in Dark Red.
A decline in KUURACORP® worker productivity lead to an internal corporate audit survey, in which it was found that 11 in 10 KUURACORP® employees were "suffering from extended withdrawal symptoms from a lack of sun-dried Yunnan black tea", with many stating "I miss the old hongcha" and "bring back the old hongcha".
To boost worker compliance and morale, prompt development of a replacement for the subject of such desires, "Floating Point", was undertaken. KUURACORP® is now pleased to present this long-anticipated production, "Dark Red", named for the colour of high-powered fluorescent lights shining through tightly-closed eyelids.
Hand-processed, sun-dried black tea ("dian hong") from a pristine forested garden in southern Yunnan, pressed neatly for your hydration pleasure.
The tea is thick, soft and smooth, with flavours that one could, if necessary, argue in a court of law are reminiscent of 'berries, honey, and sweet flowers'.

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.
