Impression Ripe Pu-erh, China
Dark tea, China

Flavour: Earthy, thick, dry & velvety 
This 2021 ripe pu-erh is a blend made with leaves from the Simao, Lincang and Mengai regions of Yunnan province. Ripe pu-erh teas are processed in a similar way to green tea, then fermented in a warm, humid environment for 40 – 50 days, which dramatically transforms the leaf colour and flavour.

Impression Ripe Pu-erh infuses into an opaque liquor with a thick, dry, velvety mouthfeel and earthy notes of moss, rock and potato skins that evolve and mellow with each successive steep.

Preparation: Rinse twice then steep 5-6g in 150 mls water for 1 minute at 95°. Eight infusions. To rinse, steep for 5 seconds then discard the liquor. After the first 1-minute steep, add a little extra time (10 sec) for each subsequent infusion.

Sizes:
Impression Ripe Pu-erh comes in four sizes: a 3-gram single serve, then 20g, 50g, and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice.
