TGL invites Adam Yasmin for an afternoon of gong fu cha with raw and ripe pu-erh teas from different regions of Yunnan, China. Gong Fu means ‘the art of doing something well’. In the tea ceremony known as gong fu cha, the implication is that time, effort, and dedication will produce a profound tea experience.
This Week's Pu-erh Course
2018 Exquisite Poetry - Yunnan, China
A raw pu-erh from the Kunlun Mountain of Yunnan, China is a sold-out pressing made with wild arbor material. Expect a combination of stone fruit, orchid, and fresh cut grass.
2008 Often - Yunnan, China
This adolescent and mysterious pu-erh is well on its way to maturity. Discovered in an aging warehouse, this tea is limited in quantity and won’t be re-created. Expect fragrances of vintage leather and flavors of barrel-aged scotch.
2016 Brown Sugar - Yunnan, China
An homage to the singer D’Angelo, Brown Sugar is a blend of small leaves coming from multiple regions of Yunnan, China. This ripe pu-erh is smooth and full-bodied with notes of leather, earth, mineral, and blackstrap molasses.
