Fire Phoenix

Shu Pu Erh 2010

  • Rank Courageous Goat

    Fresh and wet earthy flavor. Slight hint of vanilla sweetness. Flavor changes each infusion. Great ripe puerh, would recommend.

  • Rank Wind Summoning Fish

    Nice daily Pu Erh. The flavour of this tea takes you on a journey; first starting in a woodland in the morning with a dampness in the air, following infusions take you to a fresh spring woodland.

    Spending time with this tea transports me to autumn woodland. The liquor has a smooth, earthy taste. Vary brew times to find your preference. Colour ranges from bright ruby to deep mahogany.

    My first try with ripe Puerh, I really liked this tea, smell and taste of fall and leafs pile but in a lovely way. very smooth and clean finish.

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 2010 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.
