Tea Review: Silver Piece Pu Erh Tea (Serene Tea)

Silver Piece Pu Erh Tea
Serene Tea
Type: Puerh
Origin: China, Yunnan Province, Xishuangbanna
Product Description: 
It’s known as Sui Yin Zi in Chinese, which means ‘Silver Pieces’ as ancient Chinese coin. It’s a high quality Shu Pu Erh that also known as ‘fossil tea’ thanks to its appearance and the 10+ brewing. It’s also the essence part of ‘Lao Cha Tou’, which is the best aged Shu Pu Erh. Shu Pu Erh tea has to go through a microbial fermentation process after they have been dried and rolled, which allows beneficial bacteria and fungal bacteria to develop, resulting in the tea's health benefits of probiotic. It also allows the teas to improve with age like a fine wine as time goes by. Unlike most Pu Erh teas that the tea leaves unroll or expand as the steeping goes on, Silver Pieces stay the same shape through brewing.

Pu Er is also known for helping with digestive function making this is a perfect combination both for its health benefit and rich organic taste.
Temperature: 205° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of leather, wood, and moss.

The copper red infusion has an aroma of leather, kiln-dried wood, and underlying spice.  The taste is rich and savory with notes of cooked rice, a hint of sweetness following each sip, and a sticky rice-like finish.

The taste reminded me distinctly of sticky rice and the color deepened following the first steeping.  To get the most out of this tea, add more time with each subsequent steeping.

This tea was purchased by me.
