    Strong mineral and chalky flavour, with a slight bitterness and astringency with a mellow moist forest floor flavour.

THIS IS A SINGLE 100g CAKE. TO BUY A GIFTSET CONTAINING THIS TEA PLEASE PURCHASE A DINOSAUR GUSHU PUERH EXPERIENCE.

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. It is made from leaves plucked from at least 300 year old tea trees (making it a Gushu PuErh) which have been withered, hand fried, sun dried and compressed into 100g cakes.

Artwork has been drawn by Celine and hand screen printed in London. This is a limited edition cake which is part of our dinosaur Gushu range including CONE BANDIT and PIP KILLER.
