Crimson Lotus Tea

Midnight shou puerh brew session with my new Jianshui Zitao clay teapot. I’m using a 2013 old tree shou puerh and it is plain delicious brewed in Jianshui. I brew primarily in porcelain gaiwans or Yixing clay teapots and I’m liking the added flavors that the Jianshui clay has.

Jianshui clay is native to Yunnan province where puerh tea trees grow. Read more about Jianshui and Zitao pottery in our blog here: http://crimsonlotustea.com/blogs/puerh/12799169-jian-shui-zi-tao-pottery
