Product code: CSTVI-193
Add to my notebook

This loose leaf Pu er produced in the prolific Menghai tea factory and expertly preserved in Hong Kong will satisfy all amateurs of rich and balanced teas.

Thirty plus years of ripening have enhanced this tea which, once infused, offers a dense and opaque liquor. Silky and generously sweet, it carries its effects deep down the throat giving the impression of a gentle massage.

Nuances of wet wood, dates, incense and spices all lead towards a refreshing and minty finish, like we love them!

Gaiwan from Ms. Sheng | Duan Ni

The unique tone of this Yixing gaiwan is the result of multiple firings: six firings rather than two and this Duan Ni (yellow clay) piece is transformed into a complex material. As a finishing touch, the very last firing in the wood kiln gives rarity and richness to Ms Sheng's work.
