Introducing Monocle Boss

The spectacled bird has landed in our collection and we go a little gaga for this Gushu.

Whenever we set up the cameras for a tasting we hope that we are going to love the tea as much as when we sourced it originally. Occasionally this doesn't happen but thankfully these situations are more and more unusual over fifteen years experience of tea sourcing.

But this session was a real surprise because this Monocle Boss PuErh was even more rich and nuanced than the tea which we tried at Christmas. I think that you can see the expression on my face as I am taken a little by surprise by the level of this tea.

Thankfully I am not alone with many PuErh heads claiming that this is the best PuErh they have ever tasted - there was some magic going on when they pressed these beauties.
