2017 'Rhizome' Raw Pu-erh Tea

RHIZOME is a raw (sheng) pu-erh tea sourced from a single forest in Xishuangbanna, China. With a deceptively subtle upfront flavour, this pu-erh tea is low in bitterness, with a thick mouthfeel and a strong sweetness that sticks around after drinking, as well as a complex fragrance. The strength of this tea will increase as it ages.

The tea was pressed in November 2017, using a blend of material from Spring and Autumn 2017. Each cake is 200g, with 5 cakes per tong. This particular tea is compressed slightly tighter than our other productions. The use of a tea knife is recommended.

  • 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.
