This tea set is a perfect gift for the tea loving couple in your life. Brewing tea gongfu style is a pleasant ritual that is a pleasing, peaceful way to prepare delicious tea.

We have created this set with couples in mind. We discuss our motivations for creating this set in our blog "What does puerh tea have to do with marriage?". The answer to that question is that treated with love both can improve with time. We have included two teas with this set. Both are from Xiaguan, a puerh tea company with more than 100 years of history. The first puerh is a Xiaguan T8663 shou puerh that is intended for daily drinking. The second puerh is a Xiaguan T8653 sheng puerh which can be aged for a very long time.

This is our simple wish: A long, happy marriage filled with delicious tea! The Xiaguan T8653 sheng puerh comes in a 357g cake. Xiaguan calls this an ‘iron cake’. The loose tea leaves have been tightly compressed into the cake allowing them a chance to age well. Once a year on their anniversary the married couple can take 5grams of this tea and brew it together. They can reflect on the past year of their life together and compare the flavor of this tea with their past memories. With a 357g cake this is a tradition that can last more than 70 years. We wish for many happy marriages with the longevity of puerh.
