    A real taste of this traditional style- it reminds me of tea with my grandmother.

  3. Brodie

    For a raw tea, I was surprised at how gentle the flavour is. The sunny colour of the brew is also satisfying.

  4. Ryder L.

    This tea cake has a really deep and complex flavour that evokes the feeling of being in an ancient Chinese garden. Highly recommend!

    A great example of this style of tea, this has become a regular favourite. Been out of stock for a while 🙁

    Just like other aged Pu-erh tea, this one does not disappoint. It is light in flavour and the aftertaste is long-lasting.
