Product code: CSTVI-43
Add to my notebook

This Shou Pu er produced by the Haiwan factory, Yunnan, is composed of leaves of medium size compressed into a disc of 357 grams.

Upon wetting, it exhales fragrances evoking toasted cereal and forest floor. The infusion reveals a dense, creamy liquid, almost black, and an especially comforting character.

Its sweet taste is accompanied by aromas of malt, barley sugar and exotic woods to a soft and subtly fruity finish. Very generous re-infusions.

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

Nadeshiko organic

This innovation from Japan features a tea from a controlled fermentation with an assorted mix of fine khaki leaves. Its dark red liqueur is rich and full, with powerful aromas of dried fruit, bark and roasted cereal. Hints of spices (vanilla) and sugar embellish the flavours of this surprising (and difficult to classify) tea: Pu er or black tea ?!
