Our goal when making the basics set was to offer an affordable crash course in Puer tea to anyone, anywhere.
The set contains the following four 100 gram mini-cakes:
- 2018 Spring Raw Puer Tea
- 2017 Autumn Raw Puer Tea
- 2018 Huangpian
- 2014 Aged Raw Puer Tea
The spring and autumn teas are from the same village and same farmer, in order to provide a direct vertical tasting between seasons. The huangpian
[the larger, older leaves] cake is from spring 2018 and can be used as a way to understand raw Puer when it is pressed with a larger grade of leaf. The aged raw Puer allow for new Puer drinkers to experience what several years of age can do to smooth out a raw Puer tea.For brewing instructions, we recommend reading this article
