Product Description

The story of this raw Pu’er tea could be titled “Old Trees, New Inspiration.”

This fabulous tea comes to us via master grower Na Qi and her team in Bingdao in Yunnan, China. Their trees grow at an elevation of 2,000 metres and have graced the hillsides of Bingdao for hundreds of years.

That’s the old part of the equation.

The xin in “Na Xin” means “new.” It refers to new knowledge and cultivation techniques after years of trial and error.

Once you unwrap a “Na Xin” cake, its peach aroma quickly fills the room. It may taste slightly astringent at first, but this is a nice contrast with its sweet, floral-honey aftertaste. Over time, the astringency will disappear.

So, how can you get the most out of this raw Pu’er?

Brewing & Enjoying “Na Xin” Raw Bingdao Pu’er

To brew, carefully chip off about 5 grams from the cake at a time (read about that here). Add more leaves if desired.

Brew this raw Pu’er at around 90 degrees Celsius. Filtered water works best. It’s traditional to discard the first wash. Drain the leaves and retain for the next steeping. The full flavour will become apparent from the second steeping onwards.

These leaves can be infused 10 times. If the resulting nectar becomes too bitter or astringent, remove some of the leaves and re-steep. The water should be drained off completely after each pour.

Finest Sencha

This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried

Yes!

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.

The Bordeaux of teas

This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.

Naturally malty and creamy black tea

As someone who doesn't normally drink black tea, this tea would convert me.Naturally malty and even creamy, something I haven't tasted before in a black tea.Fantastic flavour and would match brilliantly with milk and as a base for a chai tea.

A really unique Japanese green tea blend

As someone who loves the intense flavour of straight matcha and traditional genmaicha, I thought this blend was a bit odd just from reading the description.But after trying it wow. You get the traditional genmaicha flavour but the added dusting of matcha dials up the flavour intensity without overpowering it. Great for those whom matcha is a bit too overpowering and want something more for everyday drinking.
