€6,50 / 50g

A 357-gram tea cake of medium density, effortlessly separates into gray-brown flagella of twisted tea leaves and silver-beige buds. The aroma is intense, floral-herbaceous. The infusion is transparent, with a shade of white grapes.

The bouquet of the ready-made tea is multifaceted, spicy-herbaceous with floral, woody, fruity, smoked and nutty notes. The aroma is intense, spicy-floral with a hint of leather. The taste is dense and smooth, oily, sweetish, pleasantly astringent, with a slight bitterness of grapefruit, citrus sourness, nuances of spices and a long, lemon-mint finish.

Brew tea with hot water (87-92°C) in a gaiwan or a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 5-6 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 15 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1-2 seconds) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 9 times.

 “Melting Reality” is an excellent Raw Puer – vivid, multifaceted, meditative.
