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.

Make your own gift set:
Choose any three tea tins and add a gift box to your order!

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
6g | per 100ml | 98°C | 1 min
+10s per steep for at least 5 steeps

Western style (Teapot)
3g | per 100ml | 98°C | 3 mins
+1 min per steep for at least 3 steeps

You can use boiling water with this tea, as the leaves are clumped tightly in pebbles that don’t unfurl. It is also resilient to over-steeping and doesn’t get bitter. In fact, the longer you steep it the sweeter it gets!

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.
