2020 Spring Hekai Old Tree "Danger Zone" Loose Leaf Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea 100g

$ 69.99

Welcome to the DANGER ZONE! We weren't able to get enough of this tea this year to do a full pressing of it. We've made what we have available loose and as dragon balls. This is the tea from the garden where we had a very close call with a 15ft King Cobra. You can read all about that story here.

This is a special tea from a very special garden. There is an emotional vibe to the garden that makes you feel like you've stepped back into a prehistoric era. 

There is a deep magic to this tea. Sessions with it are always memorable. This year it is seemingly more potent. The brew is thick, with a blessed balance of astringency and bitterness that melts as fast as a pat of butter on a hot skillet. The tea is complex but gentle. It swallows so easy that you hardly notice until you're reaching for another sip. It is grassy and floral with a dense humidity like walking through a greenhouse full of orchids. The energy is heady and palpable. It's like being kissed by a cobra. 

This material is packaged into sealed foil bags which come with an included sealing clip to keep the tea fresh.
