  • Nan Nuo 2017 Spring
    $52.00
    200g
    Nan Nuo 2017 Spring
    Our first production of Nannuo mountain tea has a strong fragance of those leaves used to wrap sticky rice. Nannuo pu'er is not as sweet as that of Yiwu region, and has a malty base of cereal & wheat husks. Good endurance, still going strong after 10 infusions.

    Ban Pen 2017 Spring
    Ban Pen, the poor mans Lao Ban Zhang, is literally just down the road from it's more famous neighbour, but has attractive qualities of it's own. It's clean tasting & more gentle than LBZ, with less bitterness & astringency. The aroma has notes of damp hay, green mung beans & plain congee with a sweet finish reminiscent of red dates. The tea flavor centers around a light malty base with sunflower seeds, sugarcane, apricot & tannin. The mouthfeel is bright and alive, with a sweet mineral aftertaste - it's very pleasant to drink even when stewed thick.

    Xiang Chun Lin 2017 Spring
    Xiang Chun Lin is a small tea grove near Yi Shan Mo & Wan Gong known for it's high quality, elegant tea. You know immediately from the fragrance & appearance of the dried leaves that you're in for a treat. After first infusion, the gaiwan wafts with a rich barnyard funk, and a top note of sweet nectar. The tea liquor is a bright golden color, full of youthful vigor, light yet viscous. Vegetal flavors of grass & barley are followed by floral sweetness. This is very well balanced tea, very clean and silky smooth, not overly smokey, bitter, nor astringent. The emptied cup gives a hint of steamed rice. All round, a classy & pleasurable example of the distinctively lighter side of pu'er - sweet & elegant.

  • Lao Ban Zhang 2017 Spring
    $315.00
    200g
    Lao Ban Zhang 2017 Spring
    A supremely enjoyable, easy to brew, authentic Lao Bao Zhang. The gaiwan lid presents a strong aroma of barnyard, bamboo matting & preserved veg, finishing with brown sugar & bubblegum. The tea is light honey amber color, deliciously thick & silky, with a malty base and mild "ku se" bitterness that dissipates quickly. Huigan is noticeable from the 5th infusion, aerating the tea in your mouth amplifies the sweetness. The quality is obvious. Look out for the powerful cha qi, it made us rather tea drunk & breathless. The empty cup has a lingering floral scent, topped with brown sugar & fine cocoa powder.

    $62.00
    200g
    Bao Tang 2017 Spring
    This is a follow up cake to our popular 2013 Bao Tang (now sadly sold out). We love Bao Tang for it's high elevation, and old trees growing in natural forest environment. This tea has a noticeable aroma & flavour of baked rice puffs. And whilst stronger than Yiwu tea, is low on bitterness and very clean & pure - our house style! The second infusion brings out a satisfyingly oily, thick mouthfeel. This tea will make you salivate. Enjoy the hint of mint that comes with the huigan!

  • Dong Ding Oolong 1985

    100g
    Dong Ding Oolong 1985
    A blast from the past! This is a very well stored Dong Ding Oolong from 1985 when Careless Whisper & Like A Virgin were top of the charts! What a treat to drink such a venerable aged tea! The dried leaves are dark & oxidised and have an aroma of roasted grain & dried seaweed. After first infusion, the gaiwan lid wafts with sweet notes of honey, toffee apples, salted fluffy white butter popcorn, mixed with heavier aromas of sandalwood, camphor, leather, musty herbal medicines. The tea liquor is a dark amber with the aroma of dried orange peel. The tea floats on the tongue - light bodied but viscous, with a smooth clean mouthfeel. There is very little sourness often found in teas of this age. The sweet flavor of roasted rice fills the mouth, throat & sinuses. An after taste of charcoal roast turns to sweet caramel. A very pleasant journey, full of warmth & character. This is a fantastic tea for relaxation & contemplation.

  • Traditional Mu Zha Tie Guan Yin 2015
    $55.00
    100g
    Traditional Mu Zha Tie Guan Yin 2015
    This is an impressive traditional Tie Guan Yin made in MuZha, Taiwan. A darker roast than newer, greener styles, the first infusion gives rise to an amazing aroma of sticky raisins & moist Christmas fruitcake. The tea liquor is a coppery orange whisky color, the mouthfeel is medium thick & slips across your palate in a lively dance of mild spices, the dry sweetness of preserved plum, underscored by a light charcoal note. A lingering aftertaste of sweet aged wood, turns to a slightly cooling sensation. High quality stuff at a reasonable price, sure to please discerning oolong lovers.

    Bai Rui Xiang 百瑞香 has over 100 years of history, originating in Hui Yuan Keng, which is a famous valley within the Wuyi protected reserve. The dry leaves have an aroma of Chinese medicinal herbs, and the tea itself is very aromatic - floral, with sweet fruit, and sandalwood. The flavour reflects it's light to medium roast, sweet on the tongue with a cinnamon donut aftertaste! The mouth & throat feel is thick and smooth as you'd expect from a premium zhengyan rock oolong. These are high quality leaves, look out for the dried orange peel note on the aftertaste, and the creamy aroma left behind in the empty cup!

    50g
    Dong Ding Oolong Light Roasted 2016
    This Dong Ding Oolong Set allows you to compare Heavy Roasted (50g) versus Light Roasted (50g) styles. The heavy roasted Dongding oolong gives an aroma of dried prunes, old orange peel, roasted sweet potato skin, with a very sweet high note. The flavor is of charcoal, roasted pine, baked nuts. The mouthfeel is dry and thick, not oily like yancha. In comparison, the roasted Dongding is very different, much more grassy & vegetal, but still thick & creamy, with a sweet strawberry milk-like fragrance.
