  • Ge Deng 2015 Spring
    $87.00
    200g
    Ge Deng 2015 Spring
    Ge Deng is a pu'er tea region neighboring Mangzhi, Yibang, and ManZhuan, in Xiangming county. Ge Deng was one of the six famous tea mountains of antiquity 江北六大茶山 and was a tribute tea during the reign of the Kangxi emperor. Today Ge Deng is highly prized for it's ancient tea trees, but it’s annual output is tiny. Ge Deng leaves are relatively black and shiny, both small leaf varietal and large leaf varietal are grown here. Ge Deng tea is more known for its sweetness and huigan, than bitterness and astringency. Our 2015 Spring Ge Deng has a subtle orchid aroma, with mown hay and brown sugar. The tea liquor is medium thick, very clean and sweet, you can taste the 花香 in the water. There is some mid-palate bitterness, with notes of sunflower seeds, followed by wood spice and grain-husk on the finish. Then comes a light minty huigan. A very nice tea.

    Dark Forest 2015 Spring
    Inbetween Wangong and Bohetang, is a small tea grove we've labelled "Dark Forest" because the tea trees are overshadowed by tall forest trees. A remote and secret place, only a tiny amount of tea is produced here. It took 3 trips into the forest to make this 16kg batch! An extremely limited and unique, wild-grown pu'er tea. Can you taste the free spirit of these dark forest trees?

    Famous Fu Shou Shan Farm 2016 winter
    Fu Shou Shan is a highly sought after variety of high mountain Taiwanese oolong, grown at 2,600m elevation at a Government owned farm in the Lishan mountain range. Fu Shou Shan is known for being highly variable, with different harvest days producing different tastes & quality. Tea geeks in Taiwan compare Fu Shou Shan to rolling a dice! Our 2015 Spring selection was processed by a single tea maker and is a stand out example of what can be achieved with this terroir. When placed in a hot gaiwan, the dried leaves release a strong floral aroma with molasses and ripe fruits. Add water, and you get deep fried vegetables & crème brûlée from the leaves, with a candy sweet top note from the gaiwan lid. The tea itself is smooth, creamy and pleasantly sweet, with roasted notes coming through on the 2nd and 3rd infusions. We only have a tiny quantity of this excellent tea, get in quick before it runs out.

  • Bai Ji Guan 2014
    $55.00
    60g
    Bai Ji Guan 2014
    An exceptional, top shelf, zhengyan Bai Ji Guan 白鸡冠 (White Cockscomb), grown within the Wuyi protected reserve. Made in the traditional method, from actual Bai Ji Guan varietal, it is yellowish, not green like many fake Bai Ji Guan. Despite being one of the four famous yancha varietals it's relatively rare to come across good Bai Ji Guan, as it hasn't been planted widely, and being quite different from other yancha styles, not everyone has the skills to get it right. From the same master as our flagship Da Hong Pao Reserve, our Bai Ji Guan is lightly roasted, with a bright yellow liquor, very fragrant aroma, floral tinged with honey, dried apricots, and Chinese medicine. Aged since 2014, it's medicinal, detoxifying properties are enhanced. The taste profile is reminiscent of aged white tea, and old dry wood.

    357g
    2001 Zhongcha - Ba Zhong
    This 2001 CNNP cake is colloquially known to pu'er collectors as "Ba Zhong" because it has eight "中“ characters around the central, green "茶" character. Aged in Taiwan and acquired by Tea Urchin in 2014. It has an aroma of camphor and fermented fruit. A manly tea, with a touch of smoke and some bitterness, suggesting Bulang leaves in the source material. Thick mouthfeel, even a little silt-grain at the finish.

  • Bulang 2010 Spring
    $74.00
    357g
    Bulang 2010 Spring
    A fantastic blend of Bulang leaves, this great value cake was produced by our friend Mr. Yu under his private label Che Ma Xuan in Spring of 2010. The Chinese character "qian" 乾 on the front of the cake refers to tea trees planted during the reign of the Qianlong emperor (1736-1795). A floral barnyard aroma fills the empty cup. This is a "gentle" Bulang, it has bitterness if pushed, but with the bitterness comes a pleasing sweet aftertaste on the tongue. A little leaf goes a long way with this cake. Really enjoyable.
