Dry stored gushu pu-erh from not so “famous” area of Ku Zhu Mountain in Jinggu area.

Autumn honey, summer meadow after the rain and excellent sweet flowery undertones.

And really high bitterness which transforms to long sweet aftertaste.

Strong and invigorating energy. Powerful pu-erh.

Before you order cake, please try a sample.

Origin: Ku Zhu Shan, Jinggu, Pu’er prefecture (Simao), Yunnan, China.

Vintage/Harvest: Spring 2013

Tea vartietal: Camellia Sinensis var Assamica

Tea trees age: 200-300 year old trees



Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 100 C 7-8g/100ml.
Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, rinse the tea for 5-10 seconds using boiling water and afterwards pour out all the water from your pot. The process of rinsing tea leaves is often defined as a waking the tea and is very important for quality of next brewings. Main aim of waking the tea is to remove caffeine and eventual pollution from old tea aged for many years. First drinkable infusion should be very short- not more than 10-20 second. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing.

1 review for 2013 Ku Zhu Shan Gushu Sheng Pu-Erh [SOLD OUT]

    Deep-amber soup. Brews up rich. Mushroom, tobacco, dark honey. Hint of sour lemon on the finish. Very full body (expansiveness). Texture is thick. Very full, warm, round, sweet, almost chocolatey, with hints of herbals and florals. Lovely semi-aged notes coming into play. Almost no drying astringency, which is always a good sign. Physical sensations are all excellent. Leaves the entire palette, mouth and throat feeling thick and swollen (in a good way). Energy is clean and pleasant, but not overwhelming. An excellent gushu pu’er. I will consider buying a cake.
