Once a tribute tea for emperors, this fully fermented ripe Puerh is made purely of young buds for a silky, velvety texture.

Why we love it:

  • It is the top grade of fully fermented ripe Puerh, made purely of young buds, which gives it a silky, velvety texture. 
  • As a fermented tea, it pairs well with heavy food like dim sum. It has also been shown to help improve blood sugar control and lower cholesterol levels.
  • Because the tannins are broken down in the fermentation process, ripe Puerh is a very mellow tea with no bitterness or astringency.
  • Most ripe Puerh is produced from the leftovers of raw Puerh production, but we source this from a family in Yunnan who are dedicated to perfecting ripe Puerh in its own right.
  • It ages well - you can keep it for many years.

We find that most Ripe Puerh tea does well with high temperatures, even boiling. We like how the earthiness is accentuated at temperatures just below boiling with this one. As a small leaf tea, the flavour gets strong, quickly, but not bitter.

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
6g | per 100ml | 98°C | 45s
+15s per steep for at least 7 steeps

Western style (Teapot)
3g | per 100ml | 95°C | 3 mins
+1 min per steep for at least 3 steeps

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
