Sample these tea cakes:

Milk Float Nomad

(2010 Gong Ting Shu PuErh)

Ultra-fine royal picking 2010 Bulang ripe PuErh.

This is such a winning tea - deep, creamy and luxurious on the tongue and mineral, cooling and refreshing in its finish - the perfect ripe experience.

Milk biscuits, custard, palm sugar and pear drops.

Midsummer Lightshow

(2010 Fuding Shou Mei)

Aged white with a deep body sensation of flushing warmth, cooling breath and feelings of quiet awe.

A worthy sequel to 'Sunfire Ripple' - this is a glorious 2010 Aged Fuding Shou Mei White Tea with an ambrosial taste and an incredible body sensation.

Thyme, prune polenta cake, cellar wood and tuica plum alcohol.

Presence Collector

(2004 Yiwu Gushu Sheng PuErh)

Special 2004 aged Yiwu Gushu Puerh.

This is a very special PuErh with so much complexity and aromatic layers that we do NOT recommend starting a session unless you have the time to sit and enjoy it for at least a dozen infusions. It is called the Presence Collector because it requests your presence for a long and involved session.

Pear puree, bitter melon and lily brightness with cedarwood, thyme, cherry and sweet tobacco depth.

Shimmer Bliss Roady

(Yiwu Gushu Raw PuErh Spring 2019)

Yiwu Gushu Raw PuErh made from 200-300-year-old tea trees in 2019.

This is our follow up cake to the wildly popular Nectar Raider, made by the same family in Gao Shan Zhai village of Yiwu. This, single batch tea was processed entirely by hand over the course of two days in mid March 2019. The pickings are first flush Gushu from the family's own forests.

Hot rocks, fresh apricots and heather honey with a blood orange finish.

Canopy Flasher

(300 Year Old Gushu Raw PuErh Nan Nuo Spring 2019)

Potent and physical raw PuErh made from over 300-year-old tea trees in Nan Nuo forests.

The Canopy Flasher is a fruity PuErh starting creamy (think banana and durian) and moving to zesty. It has a very strong physicality in the mouth and the effects are potent making it a contender for a more tea drunk session.

Half baked cookie dough, banana and starfruits moving to orange and grapefruit zest.

Dream Scene Smuggler

(200-300 Year Old Gushu Raw PuErh He Beng & Guo Gan Spring 2019)

A totally unique blend of Gushu PuErh from China (He Beng) and Myanmar (Guo Gan). Made from estimated 200-300 year old tea trees.

The mountain area of Guo Gan in Myanmar produces very fresh alpine tasting teas - meadow flowers, alpine herbs and mineral mountain stream character.

Alpine flowers, light chocolate milk, wet mountain rocks, apple and black pepper.

Fig Dipper

(2012 Bulang Shu PuErh)

A very 'adult tasting' Bulang Shu PuErh aged since 2012.

We finally get to release this long-awaited 2012 Ripe Bulang PuErh. The first shipment of Fig Dipper was destroyed by UK customs due to a paperwork error and we were determined to bring it back so we have managed to source more of the same batch of tea to make available to all of you teaheads.

Fig newtons, overproof rum, antique wood, carob and date syrup.

Office Gossip Juice

(Yiwu Huangpian Gushu Raw PuErh Spring 2019)

Huangpian Gushu raw PuErh made from ancient tea trees in Yiwu.

This tea is the follow up tea to Downtown Hen Party which sold out in a flash by smart buyers wanting to have the luxury of Yiwu Gushu as an affordable daily drinker. This year's version shows off the beauty of Yiwu - sweet and syrupy balanced with bright notes of talcum, pear, skin, orchids and hawthorn.

Pear skin, talcum, orchid and hawthorn fruits.
