2015 Emperor’s Royal Pu-erh Ripe Loose Leaf Tea

(3 customer reviews)

From: $9.99/50g

Our 2015 Emperor’s Royal Pu-erh is produced by the famous Yunnan Menghai tea factory. It is made of the most delicate leaf tips from wild big-leaf tea trees. In the old days, common people were allowed to pick leaves from these trees only after the royal household had already picked theirs, meaning that the best part of the tea tree of this Pu-erh was only available to the royal family, as a symbol of wealth and power. The reason it was so popular among the royal family was that it has outstanding health benefits, including relieving the uncomfortableness after eating a greasy meal or loosening the bowels to relieve constipation. Considering that the royal family had luxurious food every day including massive amount of meat delicacies, it is not surprising that the tea became popular!

Mellow & Smooth

Appearance & Taste

The leaves are small and slender with a slight twist and covered with golden fuzz. The taste is mellow and smooth, earthy and with a hint of lotus flavor. Because it’s aged tea for four years, it also has a special, rich Chen fragrance. The tea soup is pure and clear and its color is similar to wine-red and amber.

Brewing Guide

For simple glass vessel/teapot brewing:

You can brew fewer 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 afterward
  • 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 the first brew, extending an 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.

Menghai County, Yunan Province

Origin

It is produced in Menghai county, the famous home of Pu-erh tea and one of the earliest sites of tea production in China. The area is planted with ancient tea trees – the oldest wild tea tree here is about 1,700 years old. The leaves picked from these old trees are referred to as ‘wild arbour’.

The climate has both tropical and subtropical characteristics: The temperature differences from the southwest monsoon are small across the year, but quite large from day to day. Depending on altitude, the area can be divided into northern tropical and subtropical climate zones. It’s averaging about 18.7℃ in temperature, 2,088 hours sunshine time, 1,341 mm rainfall volumes and 32 days frost time in a year. Menghai is often very foggy as well – around 107 to 160 foggy days in a year. The soil layer is deep, fertile, slightly acidic (pH value between 4 and 6) and loose (good for drainage). The soil types there include red, yellow and lateritic, which have advantageous conditions for cultivating pu-erh tea trees.

  1. William F.

    If you’re looking to get rid of a sore throat or a severe congestion, this tea is one of your best bets. It also helps ease constipation better than green tea. No matter what your diet is, this tea works the best in reliving acidity and loosening the bowels.

  2. Ben G.

    HC is not only providing the best tea but also a lot of information too. I loved this tea. I never read about the ancient history of this tea. This Tea provides much comfort to me and my family.
    Recommended to every tea lover.

  3. Luka K.

    Beautiful tea, the fragrance can be likened to a damp-dewy forest filled with mushrooms, as well as other considerable earthy notes. When brewed properly – there is a profound salty/caramel sweetness that comes through. Highly recommend.
