Fire Phoenix

Gong Ting Shu 2008

  • Rank

    The wood taste and smell is not for me, maybe for some wet wood enthusiasts but not for me.

An excellent and affordable cooked PuErh made from very young leaves and buds making it a Royal grade ripe tea. This PuErh has been ripened really well with no unwanted molds developing. The taste is clean without any of the fishy aromas of poorly made or badly stored ripened tea.

Clearly ageing does not have the same transformative effect on ripe as it does on raw PuErh but storing the tea for a few years really allows the mustiness caused by the ripening process to dissipate. This Fire Phoenix has been stored since 2008 making it ultra clean tasting and smoother than the freshly made ripe PuErh.

It makes an excellent digestif after a heavy meal with its cleansing and cooling richness and minerality. The perfect go-to ripe PuErh for everyday drinking.

Fengqing Shu Tuo 1998

Ripe PuErh aged since 1998 in Yunnan. Wet cave, new leather, medicinal bark and the slightest earthy apple sweetness. Excellent digestif.

A perfect digestif after a heavy meal and one of the secrets to keeping slim. Dark roasted plums and burnt vanilla wood with mulled dried orange.

Brew Gong Fu style in a desktop format. The perfect way to brew at the office or home without a tea tray.
