Tibetan Mushroom Shu Pu-Erh

cooked shiitake, deep, earthy

Yunnan, China

$ 83.00

Said to resemble his trademark, mushroom-like hat, this remarkable tea was originally created as gift honoring the Panchen Lama of Tibet. We imagine he appreciated its ingenious artisanship as much as we do.

As this tea wakes up, its initial aroma and first steep comes off as a bit smoky and mesquite. The tea opens up beautifully into the most amazing creamy/malty quality - an incredibly rare find in a Pu-erh.  Certainly, a Pu-erh deserving of its own dedicated Yixing pot.

Steeping Guidelines:
4g | 8oz. @ 205˚F | 1 minute
Use a yixing or porcelain teapot. Drain completely and serve. 
Please re-infuse 7 or more times. 
Serves 49  8oz. cups per 1oz. of whole leaf tea
