About this tea

Introducing Rishi’s curated selection of winter season Shu Pu’er teas. These blends are specifically crafted to warm up and support our bodies in the colder months.

We sourced several lots of aged red tangerine and green tangerine peels from Guangdong that range from 3 to 11 years old. We then blended the peels with a hint of spicy ginger and five-year aged Shu Pu’er. Tangerine peels and ginger are a time-honored folk remedy for facing the cold winter season. Aged peels have a softer aroma and become smooth, fruity and a bit spicy over time. Typically, aged peels are considered to be more beneficial and balanced.

This Pu’er has botanicals embedded in the tea cake and is meant to be enjoyed gongfu style. It can be brewed several times until the flavor and richness dissipates. Don’t take too long on the first rinse step. The flavor and aroma will become intense in the 3rd-6th brews and mellow over the course of the gongfu session.

Wa Shan Ecological Tea Garden sits in Lincang, on the border with Myanmar (Burma) in southwestern Yunnan. Surrounded by a lush and biodiverse mountainous region, this certified organic tea farm is one we have been working with since 2013. Wa Shan is a famous tea mountain since ancient times named after the Wa ethnic minority who have farmed tea in this region for more than a thousand years.
