A nose offering iodine, cereal, humus and woody notes. This tea's characteristic is that it improves over the years. Made from the leaves of the Yunnan Camellia sinensis, the main notes develop a powerful taste with an earthy and spicy amplitude. The leaves having been rehydrated after fermentation, a second fermentation was able to complexify its broad aromatic palette; it was then refined in cold cellars. A tea with a dark red colour.Infusion time: 4 minutes.Infusion temperature: 95°cDosage: 12g/litre.
The name of this tea betrays its origin. Imperial Pu-Erh black tea comes from Yunnan, a region located in the south-east of China near the borders of Laos, Burma and Vietnam. Note that only teas produced in Yunnan can benefit from the Pu-Erh appellation.
This original tea is a little marvel, it is the top of the range of teas from the region. It is particularly appreciated by the Chinese, but also by Europeans who love black tea.
The Imperial Pu-Erh black tea is quite specific. Its leaves come from Camellia sinensis and are rehydrated after fermentation. This is what allows it to accentuate its aromatic palette to make an exceptional tea.
Yunnan Pu-Erh Imperial black tea develops woody, slightly spicy and earthy notes. Some find it a bitter taste, which can easily be corrected by respecting an infusion time not exceeding 4 minutes. This tea is full-bodied, but not extremely powerful, and is perfectly suited to the most sensitive palates.
Imperial Pu-Erh tea is grown in the mountains of Yunnan between heat and humidity. All conditions are met to produce a great tea.
As for all black teas that are oxidized, the leaves of the Camilla sinensis tea plant are withered in a ventilated room at 20-24°. They are then rolled, an essential operation as it will determine the strength of your tea. The tea leaves are then oxidized in a ventilated room. The quality of the oxidation is determined by the control of the heat and humidity in this room. After this stage, the leaves are roasted to stop the oxidation. They are placed in a dryer at high temperature.
Generally speaking, this is the last step in the processing of the tea tree leaf before sorting. However, to obtain a Yunnan Pu-Erh black tea, the leaves are rehydrated. This post-fermentation step consists in sprinkling them with water and covering them with a tarpaulin in a room where heat and humidity are controlled. The leaves are stirred regularly. This step lasts from 45 days to 3 months depending on the desired level of fermentation. We then obtain a cooked Imperial Pu-Erh. Raw Pu-Erh is matured in a humid cellar for several months.
Finally, the leaves are sorted and classified in two grades: broken leaves and whole leaves.
Pu-Erh is a tea that can naturally be enjoyed with sweet dishes as a snack or at the end of a meal. Dark chocolate is ideal with this Yunnan black tea.
However, it can also be drunk during a meal and is particularly recommended with game for a sober Sunday meal.
It can also be enjoyed with cooked cheese: Comté 18 months, Beaufort or Emmental.
