Infected Mushroom – Raw Pu Erh – Dali
Infected Mushroom is a raw Pu Erh from Dali in Yunnan province. A blended tea, with some old tea tree’s and some young tree’s. Old style smoked Pu Erh, with its age this tea makes a smooth mellow and delicous brew. It perfectly represents the humid, sub tropical terroir with strong flavours of a vibrant and wild forest.
A great tea to drink with heavy and fatty food to cleanse the palate and the stomach. Delicious also on its own as a potent mood and focus enhancer. We highly recommend using Yixing pot with this tea, this is one of those teas that REALLY comes out when using a yixing pot.
I’m as smooth as they come. Mellow soft and soothing. But watch out, my nickname is tea drunk…
Smoke, wood, whisky barrels, juniper tree.
Smooth & soothing, smoke, berries, wood, spices & herbs and vintage apricot jam.
This tea is the perfect drink for digestive purposes after a big fatty meal, and a great tea to drink all day to help maintain good vascular health due to its fat dissolving properties. It will also make you feel focused and alert. People in Yunnan have an extremely high fat and cholesterol diet, yet they stay slim with low cholesterol and low rate of heart attack. They drink Pu Erh tea on a regular basis. Aged Pu Erh tea is also a good place to start if you want to experience a tea drunk feeling. Pu Erh tea is known to make you Tea drunk, this tea may get you there.
Gong Fu Brewing:
Use approx. 8 g leaf pr. 150ml water. Rinse once, steep times should be around 5 seconds for the first three steepings and add a few seconds for each subsequent steeping. Temperature should be close to boiling (100 degrees celsius). This tea will strongly benefit from using a Yixing pot. Ceramic gaiwan also work well with this tea, or Porcelain for a slightly thinner and more delicate taste. Our favorite is to combine the smoothness of the Yixing pot with porcelain cups (for a little more “bite”), or you can use ceramic cups for a smoother rounder taste.
