Rice Scent Aged Puerh
- Brewing tips
Rice Scent Aged Puerh | 糯香茶化石
Tasting notes: Earthy, congee, pandan
Origin: Menghai, Yunnan, China
Cultivar: 大葉種 (Puerh Assamica)
Aged tea fossils are steamed with a 'sweet rice leaf’ plant to produce this comforting tea that warms the body and aids digestion.
Why we love it:
- Rice Scent Aged Puerh is a comforting, warming tea that makes you feel at home, wherever you are.
- It's not as strong as most ripe Puerh, so it's a good introductory tea for those who are not used to Puerh's earthy flavour.
- There's no rice in this tea. The congee aroma is made by steaming the tea fossils (老茶頭) with the leaves of a ‘Sweet Rice Leaf’ plant (糯米葉) that grows natively in Xishuangbanna.
- It's made from 100-year old tea trees in the Menghai region of Yunnan.
- The tea fossils are a by-product of the fermentation process called wet-piling, (渥堆), where the leaves are piled in a humid room for microbes to do their work. With repeated stirring, some leaves clump together in hard "fossils", which are then cut into pellet shapes and polished.
- As a fermented tea, it pairs well with heavy foods and is warming and soothing to the stomach.
