For more about the three cakes:

CONE BANDIT

Cone Bandit  is part of our dinosaur editions of PuErh all coming from the same Bulang mountain area of Yunnan and selected out of a tasting of twenty tea samples. It is made from leaves plucked from at least 500 year old tea trees (making it a Gushu PuErh) which have been withered, hand fried, sun dried and compressed into 100g cakes.

This tea has the creamiest character of the three Dinosaur Gushu PuErh's evoking brown bread ice cream and overipe cantaloupes. A medium to thick body and a dry to juicy finish.

This tea has the fruitiest character of the three Dinosaur Gushu PuErh's. A very thick body and deep mineral strength that grips the mouth and throat before releasing alluringly into the sweetest Hui Gan. The infusions begin with orange marmalade and later infusions evoke pear and ginger biscuits.

BLOOM BUSTER

There are a few places on Earth (all in Yunnan!) which are revered for producing the finest quality Raw PuErh. Lao Ban Zhang is at the very top of this list and while this fame has led to some unscrupulous practices, this area's reputation is for good reason. A light and floral character with a strong mineral sweetness, definitely a luxury PuErh to treat yourself or your teahead friends.

This tea is part of our dinosaur editions of PuErh all coming from the same Bulang mountain area of Yunnan. It is the most floral of the three PuErh's.
