  • Ali Shan Tasting Set 2016
    $37.00
    100g
    Ali Shan Tasting Set 2016
    This set includes 50g Ali Shan Oolong + 50g Ali Shan Jin Xuan. The oolong leaves spring open very quickly and are simply beautiful, long stem, bud & two leaves. This tea has been expertly processed with great consistency. The liquor is yellow-green, turning to yellow-orange if over steeped. Fantastic aroma - light, floral and green, the mouthfeel is light and creamy with a subtly sweet finish. Pairs perfectly with quiche! By comparison, the dry, heated leaves of the Jin Xuan give an aroma of sugarcane. When steeped, the wet leaves give off melted butter, vegetal notes & baked bread. Later in the session, sweet potato, and caramel are noticeable. The tea liquor is thick, sweet, and grassy, but not astringent. Absolutely delicious! Try it out for yourself!

  • Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine
    $50.00
    100g
    Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine
    A spectacular tea with an unusual name to match - 蜒咬贵妃茶 Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine! This highly oxidised, dark roasted, Taiwanese oolong has a heady aroma of honey orchid, tree resin & dark blackberries. We recommend fast infusions as it produces a dark amber liquor with thick mouthfeel very quickly. This tea has surprising endurance, it keeps giving rewarding, dense volumes of honey, citrus oil, old wood, and charcoal flavors - tease them out by playing with steep times. Push it hard and you get bitter tannic dancong-like flavors, with dried prune and sour grapefruit aftertaste. The aroma from the gaiwan lid shifts to baked apple pie, moist cake, toasted raisin bread with melted butter. What a stunner - a clear favourite from our 2016 Taiwan sourcing trip.

  • Yiwu Charity Cake 2016 Spring
    $45.00
    357g
    Yiwu Charity Cake 2016 Spring
    This 357g cake's "tasseography" wrapper is an original lino-cut hand-printed on hand-made paper by the New York artist Elaine Su-hui Chew. The tea comes from a village called Guo Jia Shan (过甲山). We were shocked there's still such a poor village in Yiwu area, many of the kids are barefeet and lacking clothes. They don't have any ancient tea trees, only 30 year old trees which were planted by the Government to help them out of poverty. These tea trees have been left to grow naturally, and are tall & unkempt. The tea is young & fresh, with notes of bright rock sugar, barley, fresh grass, tobacco smoke. It doesn't have great endurance, but is very clean & pure tasting. Any order including this cake, will receive free shipping (we will refund you $15 after we ship & invoice).

  • Mang Zhi 2015 spring
    $54.00
    200g
    Mang Zhi 2015 spring
    This is a delicious easy drinker that will uplift your spirits. The aroma from the wet leaves is great - with hay & barnyard, dusty old cushion or corduroy. First infusion offers cocoa without the powdery feel or bitter base. Subsequent infusions are sweet and smooth, creamy, buttery, fresh. This tea gets even better with piping hot water boiled in a tetsubin & a good yixing teapot. The teapot lid gives an aroma of faint apricot pie, apple danish. When brewed strong, it’s not as sweet, but more vegetal, with wood spice & tannin. The flavor is very active in the mouth, the after-taste lingers on the tongue. Noticeable huigan by the 3rd cup and mild euphoria by the 5th cup, with chaqi building in the upper chest behind the lungs. The sweetness fills the mouth & nasal cavity, happiness creeps up on you, with a light lifting feeling in the chest.

  • Ma Hei 2015 Spring
    $60.00
    200g
    Ma Hei 2015 Spring
    MaHei 麻黑 neighbors LuoShuiDong, and is one of the most famous villages in Yiwu, where artisan pu'er cakes are still produced entirely by hand, and stone pressed, according to traditional methods. Mahei's deep-rooted, centuries-old tea bushes produce a thick mouthfeel with classic Yiwu sweetness and elegant floral fragrance. This tea has a lot of substance which makes it a good ager but it needs to be handled right. A 1 minute infusion gives off intense twig + bark tannins, wood spice and some of the sour bitterness of grape skin and seeds, with a hint of dried apricot and a citric tang on the finish. Short 10-20 second infusions produce silky smooth and thick tea, with fantastic floral aroma, and great endurance. So be gentle!
