Menghai 66 Anniversary Pu-Erh Raw&Ripe Tea Cake Gift Box 2006
Pu-erh (or Pu'er) tea is also known as hei cha or 'dark tea'. For generations, the ethnic groups of southwest Yunnan province have wild-harvested leaves from ancient tea plants, some centuries old and as tall as trees. The thick body and dense chestnut flavor of Pu-erh leave a smooth-yet-resounding finish on the palate. Pu-erh green tea flavor is fresh and vegetal similar to green tea but more digestive. Ripe (or cooked Pu'er) is aged longer and its aroma and flavor are deep, rich, earthy, and semi-sweet.
This attractive gift box contains the best raw and aged Pu-erh tea cakes from Menghai region. Pu-Erh is a fully fermented tea that goes through complex processing in which it is shaped into cakes and, like a fine wine, is aged for years to mature the full bloom of its flavors. This process creates a unique aroma and complex flavors along with many added health benefits. Pu-Erh is believed to aid in reducing cholesterol and fat and is best enjoyed around 15 - 20 minutes after a meal to aid in digestion. This tea can be prepared 'gongfu' style, using a small teapot and preparing multiple infusions from the same leaves. It is best enjoyed if it's rinsed with boiling water prior to steeping.
