Sale Price

Prized for its high elevation and groves of old tea trees, this Hekai sheng was harvested outside of Guang Gang village. With notes of broccoli rabe, chardonnay and old fashioned donut, this is a tea with plenty of flavor up front and delivers complex dynamics and intensity on the back. It's the perfect cake for all levels of tea drinkers.

Harvested in spring 2023

Tasting Notes:Broccoli rabe, chardonnay and old fashioned dounut

Bring spring or filtered water to approximately 212°F. Dislodge a 7g piece of pu-erh (approximately the size of a silver dollar). Steep in traditional gaiwan method—making multiple infusions, starting at 10-15 seconds and increase 5-10 seconds with each steeping. Further reading.

Storage: Unlike most tea, pu-erh improves with age and may be enjoyed for years. For best results, we recommend storing in a cool, dry place that is temperature controlled. Do not place near other aromatic ingredients such as coffee.
