2021 "Altered State" Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea
We are back at it again with this mind-bending tea. If you're familiar with the first Altered State then this tea will need no introduction. If not, just know that this tea is the essence of Cha Qi / Tea Energy. If you have ever been curious about what Cha Qi is then this is the tea for you. If you already know what Cha QI is then this tea is for you.
Just like the original this tea lays down heavy hitting Cha Qi and doesn't let up. This tea is a creative blend of all of the most intense, hardest hitting, mental lobotomizing, consciousness opening, face melting sheng puerh we could find this year. These cakes are hand blended and sure to impress.

Nailing down an exact flavor and aroma profile has proved elusive. This tea has many faces. It has a base in the fruity / floral sphere but it will surprise you. There are times when this tea gives strong recollections of our coffee days brewing a pour-overs of small batch roasted Colombian Geisha beans. It provides a very delightful session.
We have 20g sample sessions available. Tong's have 5x 200g cakes sealed in bamboo. We only have a limited amount of tongs for sale.
Each cake comes with a special "Altered State" sticker!
