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).
