I am jealous of whoever buys this cake. Quantities being what they are, it feels like a violation of a sacred bond for me to keep back even one of these for myself. If it's you, congrats. You got the golden ticket.
Hand embroidered label in the sleeve reads:
Possibly our most asked about tea to date, and once again our flagship raw puer for 2021.
Expensive. Hard to get access to. But this is the kind of tea that makes it all worth it.
Silky smooth, soft, sweet, and soothing—but definitely not weak. The underlying strength is more of a bass note rather than being in your face, and that's precisely the point with teas like this. The phrase 'Iron fist in a silk glove' comes to mind. A very satisfying and quenching drink.
The texture of this tea is what sets it apart the most—try steeping on the lighter side to really emphasise the freshly-shaved skin on silk sheets feeling.
