From The Essence of Tea

We began our tea business in 2008, visiting Nannuo, Yiwu and Lao Banzhang, pressing some small productions and finding our feet in the tea world.

We decided that it might be nice to make a special production to mark our 15 year anniversary, with a blend that we’d been playing about with over the past few years. We have decided not to reveal the contents of the blend, but I think it’s fair to say that it’s one of the favourite teas that we have pressed so far.

It ticks all the boxes – strong, elegant, uplifting, strength to age over the years, lovely to drink now. The tea dances in the mouth, changing quickly with a hint of bitterness melting into a long, sweet cooling aftertaste with mouth-watering sensations and vibrant energy. We can highly recommend this tea.

You know those happy little tea samples that make their way to your table, and you break it open and begin steeping, and by the first sip you grab your phone and look up if it’s still for sale and how much you can afford to buy?? No?? … me neither….

Lol, this was that tea for me! great stuff; a beautiful blend!
The sample was a small edge of cake loosely thread with a lovely array of colors. I wasn’t pay too much attention, but I lowered it into my yixing and began steeping while listening to some tunes. The first sip grabbed ahold of my attention. Pungent, smooth, sweet, and nourishing. A complex fascinating array of feelings and tastes. if you’ll allow, I’ll ramble on for a minute, I’m reaching the point in my puerh journey where my horde is out of control and not many cakes peak my interest. I can categorize teas into just a handful of categories. It’s an attitude I’m recently working on adjusting. To circle back, this brew helped with that attitude adjustment. Simple yet refined, no frills, marketing tactics, single origin or terroir specific notes. It was straightforward with intriguing qualities for those wanting more. This is a tea i could comfortably serve to friends and families alike. This is an early Sunday morning brew, or an after-harvest pick-me-up, or even an evening broth to melt the stress off from the chores of the day. It opens with soft vegetive tones and a nourishing spring water background. The movement continues to watercress, lily pads, and bamboo shoots. The gulp ends with a mild tannin on the tongue and returning sweetness that lingers in the throat. You can expect Menghai fruitiness, Lincang clarity, and Yiwu tenderness.
