Mellow & Smooth

Appearance & Taste

The bud is large and well formed; it is exposed and resembles a needle covered with golden fuzz (hence the name). The taste of the tea is mellow and smooth with earthy and honeyed flavours; because it has been aged for six years, it also has a special, rich Chen fragrance. It is sweet with a hint of caramel and a sweet, lingering aftertaste. The tea soup is pure and clear and wine-red to amber in colour.

Brewing Guide

For simple glass vessel / teapot brewing:

You can brew less tea leaves with more hot water for longer brewing time. Use 2 teaspoons of the tea for 125ml teacup, 4 teaspoons for 250ml glass or 8 teaspoons for 500ml teapot. Using 100°C hot water to infuse tea leaves for around 3-4 minutes. Re-steep for around 6-7 times. Adjust it according to personal taste.

For Gongfu Style: (Recommend using (Yixing) Clay Teapot and Gaiwan)

-Detailed processes:

  • Warm the Gaiwan/tiny teapot with hot water; discard the water afterwards
  • Add 1g Pu’er tea for every 50ml of water (recommend 7g-10g tea leaves, adjust by personal taste)
  • Pour hot water (100 °C) into the clay teapot / Gaiwan, tilt it, slowly rotating it two times and quickly discard the water (this step is for waking up tea leaves and stimulating the special aroma of the Pu’er tea)
  • Refill clay teapot/Gaiwan with hot water
  • Infuse tea for around 10s – 20s for first brew, extending extra 20s infusion time for the following brew.
  • Pour the steeped tea into serving cup and divided into small teacups and serve
  • Repeat 8-15 times depends on personal taste.

  1. Joseph B.

    Golden Needle Pu’erh Ripe Loose Leaf Tea is one of the best blessings of God on the earth. I have been drinking quality grade teas for a decade now and this is definitely quality stuff. I would certainly recommend this tea to everyone who enjoys along teas or loves the tea in general.

  2. Oliver H.

    This tea not only aids in digestion but also soothes stress after a hectic day at work. There’s nothing better than sipping on this tea after a meal which clears away all accumulation in your throat and removes any degree of constipation and bowel imbalance.

  3. Adam
