Once a tribute tea for emperors, this high grade Ripe Puerh (熟普洱) is made purely of young buds, which gives it a silky smooth, velvety texture. 

Known for being a digestive aid, this tea pairs perfectly with heavy and sweet food. It is also shown to help improve blood sugar control and lower cholesterol levels. 

Ripe Puerh is a fully fermented tea. It is made by a process called wet-piling (渥堆), where the tea leaves are left in humid conditions for microbes to do their work. During this process, the tannins are broken down, making Ripe Puerh a mellow tea with no bitterness or astringency.

You can also keep it for many years, as it ages well.

It’s rare to find quality Ripe Puerh these days, as the majority is made from leftover, lower quality Raw Puerh (生普洱), so we’re very pleased to have found this family-run farm in Yunnan, dedicated to perfecting Ripe Puerh in its own right.

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.
