Pu-erh Bingcha Sampler

Pu-erh Bingcha Sampler

38.40

Taste a range of pu-erhs from Yunnan Province, China, home to the oldest tradition of tea! From the initial sun-drying of the leaves, compression into a disk or cake form (bingcha), and an intentional aging period, pu-erh is a unique category. Over time, the flavor and fragrances mellow and deepen; the leaves can be infused a dozen or more times.

We've made four of our most popular bingchas available as a sampler set: now you can taste two sheng (green) bingchas from Daxue Mountain across two different years of production, 2009 and 2008, alongside two different shu (black) bingchas from the venerable Menghai factory. Or give as a gift to your favorite tea connoisseur!

Contains 1/2 oz (14 g) each looseleaf from four bingchas: Blessed Forever DaxueTsunami Daxue, Menghai Brown and Menghai Hui Wei.

Steep with water just under boiling (195–200° F) for the sheng, and water at a boil for the shu; rinse leaves quickly before the first infusion, and enjoy multiple cups from the same leaves.
