    Interesting video, guys.

    Two rinses? Is this common in the world of pu’erh? If so, what is the advantage over one rinse?

    And does this company actually sell tea online, or are they still in start-up mode?

    Hi Peter,

    Two rinses is very common for any sort of compressed tea (Pu’erh, heicha). This essentially serves the purpose of washing the leaves as well as breaking apart the tea away from it’s chunks.

    Crimson Lotus is still in start-up mode. You might be able to message them about their Pu’erh starter kit if you interested, but they’re traveling to China in early 2014 for several months to get married (in China) as well as source some tea!

    I’m watching the Tweets, rather looking forward to Crimson Lotus returning to the states so I can order some of their cakes. Feels like we will get in on some sweet tasting secrets very soon,

      Yes indeed! I’m excited as well. Looking forward to reconnecting with them.
