2022 'Entheone' Raw Pu-erh Tea
It’s often said there are teas that you choose to drink for the day, and teas that choose how your day will go when you drink them. This is a gloves off, classical style raw puerh power drinker full of potent bitterness, intense mouth and throat activity, and a cooling huigan that will hang around for a long time. A kinetic warhead; we kindly suggest making sure you have enough food in your stomach, and time to waste in the day. An indulgent, somewhat egregious blend of strong, unique material. The kind of tea we got into the tea business in order to make.
Consider this our 5 year anniversary production; a lot of moving parts came together to create this complex blend, and it's not something we could replicate easily or very often. We plan to keep this tea around for the long haul; if so inclined, we recommend picking some up now to keep and age for yourself for many years.
Spring 2022 material, 200g per compressed cake, with five cakes in each traditionally wrapped bamboo tong. 25g samples are cut/broken from 200g cakes and sealed into bags.

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.
