Product code: CSTVI-187
Add to my notebook

This 200g tea cake, signed with out logo, has been entirely made with leaves from Mengsong Moutain in Bulang Shan.

This fine harvest results in an intensively herbaceous infusion with flavors both bitter and exquisitely sweet. Floral notes abound from beginning to end, escorted throughout by a gourmet presence evoking almond paste.

A tea as powerful as it is fine, offering an unusual persistence.

*Please note that any cakes purchased may have slightly reduced in weight (up to 10%) due to changes in climate and relative humidity.
