For those that do not know our love for Monocle Boss you are welcome to watch as I go a little crazy for this fabulously smooth, thick and slightly mad tea.
This is a Gushu PuErh made from ancient arbor trees in Pasha with a circumference of between 80 and 115cm. This estimates the age of tea trees between 300 and 500 years old although there is no official certification for ageing these tea trees.
This tea is very bud heavy and even the leaves have a thick sheen of tea hairs. We recommend that you brew unfiltered to get the maximum syrupy texture of this Gushu PuErh.
This set comes complete with Monocle Boss, a very useful tea inspection tray and sandalwood cake pick. Watch how we use these for breaking into our tea cakes.
