    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.

    This premium tie luo han is pure "zhengyan", meaning sourced from within the protected wuyishan nature reserve. The dry leaves smell of roasted nuts but the wet leaves smell herbaceous, with a strong hint of fruit. The tea liquor is nutty, mineral and slightly bitter at the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is thick and malty, charcoal swirls up the inner cheeks. A beautiful floral aroma lingers in the empty cup. One of the best yancha we've ever tasted.
