  • Man Zhuan 2017 Spring
    $79.00
    200g
    Man Zhuan 2017 Spring
    This is a blend of the best from different villages in Manzhuan, and the resulting cake is the highlight of our 2017 tea sourcing trip in Yiwu. The maocha was really well processed and the dry leaves are very aromatic. Once infused, there is an aroma of sweet granary, with sticky rice. The flavor is still juicy fresh, light apricot with barley, a touch of grass, floral with a sweet high note. The mouthfeel is relatively thick for yiwu tea, the huigan appears quickly, and lingers at the back of throat. Top notch Manzhuan.

    200g
    Nan Nuo 2017 Spring
    Our first production of Nannuo mountain tea has a strong fragance of those leaves used to wrap sticky rice. Nannuo pu'er is not as sweet as that of Yiwu region, and has a malty base of cereal & wheat husks. Good endurance, still going strong after 10 infusions.

    Ban Pen 2017 Spring
    Ban Pen, the poor mans Lao Ban Zhang, is literally just down the road from it's more famous neighbour, but has attractive qualities of it's own. It's clean tasting & more gentle than LBZ, with less bitterness & astringency. The aroma has notes of damp hay, green mung beans & plain congee with a sweet finish reminiscent of red dates. The tea flavor centers around a light malty base with sunflower seeds, sugarcane, apricot & tannin. The mouthfeel is bright and alive, with a sweet mineral aftertaste - it's very pleasant to drink even when stewed thick.

    200g
    Xiang Chun Lin 2017 Spring
    Xiang Chun Lin is a small tea grove near Yi Shan Mo & Wan Gong known for it's high quality, elegant tea. You know immediately from the fragrance & appearance of the dried leaves that you're in for a treat. After first infusion, the gaiwan wafts with a rich barnyard funk, and a top note of sweet nectar. The tea liquor is a bright golden color, full of youthful vigor, light yet viscous. Vegetal flavors of grass & barley are followed by floral sweetness. This is very well balanced tea, very clean and silky smooth, not overly smokey, bitter, nor astringent. The emptied cup gives a hint of steamed rice. All round, a classy & pleasurable example of the distinctively lighter side of pu'er - sweet & elegant.

  • Lao Ban Zhang 2017 Spring
    $315.00
    200g
    Lao Ban Zhang 2017 Spring
    A supremely enjoyable, easy to brew, authentic Lao Bao Zhang. The gaiwan lid presents a strong aroma of barnyard, bamboo matting & preserved veg, finishing with brown sugar & bubblegum. The tea is light honey amber color, deliciously thick & silky, with a malty base and mild "ku se" bitterness that dissipates quickly. Huigan is noticeable from the 5th infusion, aerating the tea in your mouth amplifies the sweetness. The quality is obvious. Look out for the powerful cha qi, it made us rather tea drunk & breathless. The empty cup has a lingering floral scent, topped with brown sugar & fine cocoa powder.

    200g
    Bao Tang 2017 Spring
    This is a follow up cake to our popular 2013 Bao Tang (now sadly sold out). We love Bao Tang for it's high elevation, and old trees growing in natural forest environment. This tea has a noticeable aroma & flavour of baked rice puffs. And whilst stronger than Yiwu tea, is low on bitterness and very clean & pure - our house style! The second infusion brings out a satisfyingly oily, thick mouthfeel. This tea will make you salivate. Enjoy the hint of mint that comes with the huigan!

  • Bulang Chun Xiang 2016
    $45.00
    357g
    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).

  • 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.
