Pu'er Tea Cake OASHUPUTC125-RP ORIGIN: YUNNAN, CHINA

Ingredients: Organic pu'er tea. This vintage tea consists of aged shu pu'er that is compressed into a cake and packed in traditional bamboo leaf bundles called a tong. This reserve pu'er tea is released only when it is ready. Its deep garnet infusion with a dense, opaque liquor bears a mellow sweetness that drinks remarkably smooth with a rich earthy body. Best brewed in the Gongfu Cha style using a gaiwan or traditional clay teapot, this is a glorious example of a traditional, compressed pu'er. Ask which vintage is currently available. Can be purchased as individual 125 gram cakes or in the original bamboo wrapped tong pack of seven tea cakes (shown right).
