I discovered how much I enjoy the Shou Pu'er tea and the excellent customer service at The Little Red Cup Tea Company when I ordered a sample of all their offerings a few months back. The Shou Pu'er emerged as my clear favorite. It has a simple, clean, almost feminine, delicate flavor that is soothing to my palate. With all teas, I highly recommend following instructions for water temperature and brewing times. I once exceeded these, and, although the over-extracted result was actually still good, it was not nearly as good as when I follow directions appropriately. With both shipments, I received a personalized note and brewing recommendations, which I very much appreciated.
I drink the jasmine green tea most days and never get tired of it because it has such a lovely, multi-note flavor. It's also far more potent than anything else I've bought so I use far less tea per cup of water. Also, the tins the tea comes in are charming!
I love this tea! It has great flavor and the aroma is amazing.
I lack the correct words for description but I love it and so does my wife. Lovely earthy tones and a dark hue.
I have been buying from the little red cup for about a year now. I have purchased a number of different teas and have been very happy with the tea as well as the customer service and delivery.
I made a cupful one recent afternoon, brewed it three minutes, and tasted full deep flavor with not ONE HINT of bitterness. Aesthetic note: if a deep brown brew can have a pink cast to it, this cupful did. Including when I spilled a bit on the white counter.
