THE MINI Raw Pu’er Cake

$30.00

Proof that good teas come in small packages!

Description

And by ‘good’ we really mean ‘great.’

This 100 gram Pu’er tea cake is a tea with subtle sweetness and depth of character that will last for multiple infusions. Floral aromas predominate.

Perfect for savouring on cold afternoons and for helping keep mind, body and soul together as you make your way through the day.

Brewing & Enjoying THE MINI Raw Pu’er Cake

  • Raw Pu’er is best brewed at around 85 or 90 degrees Celsius, with 125 ml filtered water.
  • Chip off and steep a good handful of leaves (about 5 grams) from this Pu’er tea cake and discard the water immediately after.
  • As with any Pu’er tea cake we recommend drinking the second infusion onwards (the same leaves will last at least 5 infusions).

A great first pu'er cake

This was the first raw pu'er cake I ever purchased and was a great introduction to what a young raw pu'er is like. By flash steeping, this can last for over a dozen steeps. It has that classic bitterness that the Lincang region is known for, which I find quite enjoyable. After the first few flash-steeps, you'll begin to really notice the sweetness kicking in and a menthol sensation building in the throat. It's fun experiencing the tea changing as the session progresses. There are better young raw pu'er cakes out there but this one is solid, and the unusually small size keeps the price down enough to make it easier to try.

Thanks for the feedback, Cha Crusade! Great to know you're getting so many steeps out of The Mini.

Oolong love you long time

This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.

We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.

I recently bought this via special order.The earthy aroma and complexity of flavour is something I've never tasted before in a tea.Just magnificent.

It is indeed a wonderful tea. Thanks for the glowing review Konrad!

MATCHA (Unkaku: ‘Crane in the Clouds’)

Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!

Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
