    Gua Feng Zhai 2015 Spring
    Our 2015 Gua Feng Zhai 刮风寨 presents a strong floral aroma, with a light butter note. The soup is thick, with really nice mid-palate grain and wood flavors, and a grassy aftertaste. A spot of huigan appears at the back of throat, chaqi kicks in around the 4th infusion, starting with a warm belly, then rising from the diaphragm and down the arms.

    Lincang 2015 Spring
    Having made pure Nahan cakes in 2013 and 2014, we decided to do something different for 2015. We've made a special Lincang cake, comprised of a 50-50 blend of Nahan and Man gang pu'er tea. Both tea gardens are in close proximity to Xigui, Bangdong county. The aroma from the gaiwan lid is of broad beans, spinach, meadow, and hay. The emptied cup reveals notes of brown sugar, and sweet potato soup. As with our pure Nahan, there is bitterness (of the good kind), which is softened by the Man gang tea. The tea soup is thick and vegetal. A chesty chaqi builds behind the lungs, and subtle huigan follows a few minutes later. Please enjoy!

    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.
