Homestyle 2016 Lao Cha Tou Ripe Puer



There’s nothing quite as comforting as sitting down with a fresh brew of our Homestyle Lao Cha Tou ripe puer. If this were a TV commercial we would cue images of old friends chatting over a cup, feet up by the fire, or perhaps a fresh load of laundry from the drier. Then you would truly understand how this tea will give you the warm fuzzies from the inside out, with a creamy cocoa taste and even a hint of cherry.

This tea can be brewed regularly with a gaiwan or teapot, or as we prefer, boiled. For boiling, add some partially brewed or fresh Lao Cha Tou, water, then bring to a boil until the soup colour has reached desired consistency, whether it be a bright red or motor oil black. With a tea this smooth, there’s no wrong way to make it.

If this is your first time cooking up Lao Cha Tou, then don’t be alarmed if they don’t break up when brewing. That’s just how they like it, and that works just fine for us.

    Perfect tea for autumn and winter! Good looking red-brown colored liquor. The color of the leaves are sienna brown and copper; very warm. I noticed some earthy and chocolate notes. There’s a certain humidity coming out which is why autumn is a great season to drink this tea. Also, the fruit freshness and the creamy texture turn the experience very comforting.

    I love this Lao Chao, it keeps giving and giving
    Caramel and earthy notes, many infusions

    Very nice tea for casual brew sessions and/or boiling, as they suggest. I often drink this on cold days at work when I want a no fuss, but tasty tea.

    I had a sample of this. A very warm, rich tea. Thick and casual. My personal preference is for something a little lighter, but this tea is tenacious and I was able to enjoy the later brews very easily. It grew on me, but I still don’t like the early brew.

    This tea goes on forever, and tastes amazing all the way. Another thing, these cute lil’ nuggies will not break apart on their own, after 12 infusions they were still solid, so I broke them up to get even more out of em’! Chocolatey sweetness, smooth with no hint of bitterness.
