Description

"Lao Cha Tou" is a cooked (shou) pu'erh and is translated from Chinese meaning 'Old Tea head'. It is a very famous pu'erh variety, also known as 'Dragon Lumps', or 'pu'erh rocks'. It has a pleasant bitterness, with a nutty and pronounced taste of dried fruit, a sweet soft flavor with hints of chocolate and a very long aftertaste. 1998 Year Lao Cha Tou Ripe Pu'erh produces a thick, heavy tea infusion, and is a wonderful pu'erh that we are proud to carry.

This is how to do it:
1 TSP or 1 BAG
200ml
95°C
1.5 - 3 min

Ingredients:

Surprised this tea tasted so good. First time buyer as my usual tea was temporarily out of stock. Has a bright but mellow taste for me. I hope I can get multiple infusions that taste the same. We shall see.

I enjoyed the tea, but on multiple occasions I've found hair in the tea itself, and it's certainly not mine. Hopefully other batches are alright but I won't be buying again.

I have bought this one over and over. I fear someday it be gone ! Amazingly smooth, rich and earthy. Dark and mysterious gorgeous color. Cant over brew this one. Make it a think and strong as you like. Not a hint of bitterness or astringency. Just a rich and full bodied cup in the morning. Makes great iced tea too.

This is one of the finest ive had. Really smooth, rich and deep. Gorgeous Chestnut Brown color. Bag smells like raisins and fruit. Not at all bitter but creamy and thick mouth feel. My overall favorite of my 100s of teas on my shelf. ! Will be buying many more. You can make many cups from a small amount. Its so good I just kept drinking it till I almost got sick from so much tea ! I think it really is well aged and ripe. NO tastes of dirt yet woodsy and earthy. Heaven in a cup is what this stuff is. Pure Zen.
