2022 'Glossolalia' Raw Pu-erh Tea
Fans of Kuura's previous productions of ‘Dissolver’ should find joy in this complex raw puerh tea blend built around thick, oily mouthfeel, and strength you feel in your body.
At risk of all of our tea descriptions sounding the same, we’d say you should choose this tea if you want a ’best of Xishuangbanna' blend without overpaying for hype. As always, tea is a reflection of its growing environment, and many old and imposing groves of Yunnan forest went into this one.

Spring 2022 material, 200g per compressed cake
Use boiling water (100C).
We recommend approx 1g of tea per 15ml of water for Gongfu-style brewing in a teapot or gaiwan. Rinse the leaves once and then brew several times until there is no flavour left.
For Western-style brewing in a larger teapot, use approx. 5g per 100ml of water. You can re-brew the leaves a few times.
To brew direct in a mug, use 1-2g of tea in the bottom of the cup, fill with boiling water, and drink once cool. Re-fill the cup with more water when you've drunk 1/3rd of the tea. Repeat until there is no more flavour left.
To brew Kombucha or Jun - depending on how strong you like it - use 15g for 2 litres. Let steep with your choice of sugar type until a deep rich colour and flavour. Add to your Kombucha starter liquid and mother and brew until slightly effevescent and bottle for a second ferment.
