  • Dong Ding Oolong Light Roasted 2016
    $18.00
    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.

  • Ali Shan Tasting Set 2016

    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.

    Bulang Chun Xiang 2016
    This is our first Tea Urchin manufacture of ripe pu'er, and for this special pressing, we chose 10 year old aged tea leaves from the Bulang region that give a smooth, mellow, warming feeling. That's why we named it Bulang Chun Xiang 布朗醇香 - only age and fermentation can produce a mellow Bulang! The hand-printed wrapper artwork depicts a tea spirit, by Elaine Su-Hui Chew. The thick wrapping paper is also hand made. We hope you enjoy it!

  • 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).
