Tea Soul

The Bulang Treasure 2020 Puer Sheng (raw) Tea is a product carefully selected by Tea Soul to offer an even more in-depth tasting experience and knowledge regarding the complex type of puer teas.

The gardens from which the leaves of this sheng come are located near the city of Mengzhe in Menghai county. From this area in the far south of Yunnan, in Xishuangbanna province, come many high-quality puer due to the area's excellent raw material and the large presence of skilled and experienced tea artisans.

The infusion of Puer Sheng (raw) Tea Bulang Treasure 2020 possesses a fairly complex flavor profile capable of developing greatly especially in the aftertaste. In the first few sips, the tea shows mainly its vegetal character suggesting both a strong asparagus-like taste and a fresher one equated to that in soybean sprouts.

As the tasting progresses, the puer also reveals a sweetness with a hint of cereal and a particularly soft body so much so as to suggest a buttery sensation on the palate. Amidst the rich panorama of flavors in this product, a slight bitterness can also be perceived, a sign of great potential for maturation over time.

If you would like to further explore the wide range of flavors that the Bulang area is capable of expressing, we suggest you compare this product with the 2018 Bulang Gushu Puer Sheng (Raw) Tea.

Location of Origin

Mengzhe, Menghai County - Yunnan, China


After harvesting, the leaves of Bulang Treasure 2020 Puer Sheng (Raw) Tea are left to wither in the sun for a certain amount of time depending on the producer before going through the "green killing" stage which is purportedly similar to that used to produce green teas.

The special feature, in this case, lies in not heating the leaves as much as is done for a green tea so that certain enzymes capable of modifying flavors over time are preserved.

Once cooked, the leaves are allowed to rest overnight before concluding the sun-drying process. At this stage, the product is called maocha and is ready to be (eventually) pressed in order to obtain the best conditions for transportation and aging.

To press the leaves they are passed through a strong jet of steam for a few seconds so that they are made soft externally and, subsequently, they are collected in a sock or sack that will give the product its shape, usually discoidal.

To ensure that this structure remains fixed over time, the sack is left for hours under a stone or mechanical press while the leaves lose that residual moisture taken up by the steam in the previous step.

Method of Infusing Puer Sheng (Raw) Tea Bulang Treasure 2020

We strongly recommend infusing Puer Sheng (Raw) Tea Bulang Treasure 2020 in the traditional Chinese method (Gong Fu Cha) with a Gaiwan with a capacity of about 100 ml. By following this preparation, with 5 grams of leaves, multiple infusions can be made that are useful for best tasting all the flavors of the tea.

After a quick rinse of the leaves with water at a temperature of 100°C, an initial infusion of 10 seconds can be made, and then, keeping the water at the same temperature, the product can be continued to be exploited by adding more to water and increasing the previous infusion time by about 5 seconds (10 - 15 - 20...).

For a more traditional preparation according to the Western style we recommend 3 grams of leaves (about 2 teaspoons) in a 150 ml cup with water at 100°C for an infusion time of one and a half minutes.

For a better tasting experience we suggest that you strain the infusion as soon as the established steeping time is over. Our suggested infusion timings, however, can also be slightly modified to your liking to achieve a more or less intense taste.

We recommend storing in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Benefits of Puer Sheng Tea (raw)

Puer Sheng Teas (raw) mainly have effects concerning the nervous system. In fact, thanks to their caffeine and amino acid content, they are able to give both a useful arousal to keep the mind awake and responsive, and lower the production of certain hormones that lead to a sense of stress.

The charge induced by Puer Sheng (raw) Tea, moreover, manifests itself gradually in the body and demonstrates a longer duration in time than the effect that can be felt by taking Green Teas.

Finally, if you are particularly sensitive to caffeine, we encourage you to take no more than two cups of Puer Sheng Tea (raw) per day and perhaps try to take this drink in the morning or early afternoon.
