2017 'Vector' Raw Puer
VECTOR is a raw (sheng) puer cake made with a blend of material from various areas of Xishuangbanna.
We designed this tea as an ideal every day drinking cake for our own personal tastes.
We think this tea punches above its weight for the price, due to the use of some obscure material that is not subject to fame or hype.The tea has a medium body and not too much bitterness, with a good measure of sweetness especially in long, late steeps. Approachable as an entry point for people new to puer, and solid enough to for jaded junkies like me to drink with abandon and put away for the years to come.
The tea was pressed in November 2017, using a mixture of material from Spring and Autumn 2017.
Each cake is 200g
This particular tea is compressed slightly tighter than our other productions. The use of a tea knife is recommended.
How do I brew my tea?
Brew this tea using boiling water.
Kuura have put together a simple guide for brewing their tea here.
Tea is very easy to make, and can be made in a variety of different ways and still taste good.
Another simple way is to simply put a small amount of tea leaves in a large mug of hot water. Let it cool, then sip away. Top it back up with hot water and repeat until there is no flavour left.
