    Wildflowers and bitter herbs. Grapefruit and a teeny bite of pepper on the first infusion. More like perfumey lilies on subsequent infusions.

    Although initially quite a little too strong to me and a little bitter, it develops a most surprising aftertaste of very intense flowers and tropical fruit, amazing.

    Wonderful nose to this Gushu. Background of jasmine flowers and a satisfying bitterness that transforms to sweetness with the finish. Lots of "throat charm", lol.

    Nose brown bread ice-cream: yes! Savoury, herby astringency, light sweetness. Sage. S4-5 Very drying & tannic, then S6 green grape clean fruitiness.

    Really juicy character with the typical raw Puerh taste. Bitterness go hand in hand with creamy tones. There are green grape notes indeed. Lingering aftertaste.

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

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.

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 BLOOM BUSTER and PIP KILLER.
