PLEASE BE ADVISED: All Mei Leaf Flight boxes contain very small batch and exclusive teas and are therefore very limited edition.
Taste three Mei Leaf PuErh cakes in one flight selection. The perfect gift for yourself or a loved one, for beginners or experienced teaheads!
Tasting teas and educating your palate can be challenging because we tend to taste one tea in a session. By experiencing a flight of teas in a horizontal tasting, we can directly compare flavours and understand the nuances of different terroirs and production techniques.
This PuErh Tea Flight box contains three top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. The flight box allows you to taste the difference between raw and ripe PuErh and experience the difference that the age of the tea tree makes to Sheng PuErh.
The box includes a card with the key differences between the teas which influence the flavour so that you can gain deeper knowledge of a particular tea type.
Once you have done a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.
This box contains:
A comforting and easy drinking Xigui village raw PuErh made from 150 year old tea trees. Pandan rice pudding with strawberry jam and jasmine.
Masterful Raw Gushu with a thick, syrupy texture. Sweet grapefruit zest, leather bound library books and brown butter. The tiniest hint of bitterness transforms to a lily flower sweetness.
Ripe PuErh aged since 1998 in Yunnan. Wet cave, new leather, medicinal bark and the slightest earthy apple sweetness. Excellent digestif.
