2018 Spring "Intrigue" Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea Blend

$ 7.99

This is a custom tea blend of Spring 2018 first picked material. We worked a long time perfecting this blend. We wanted something that matched the complexity and depth of the artwork. The amazing wrapper was designed by Bev Byrnes. ( check her out on Instagram ) She is a local Seattle artist who has been into puerh tea for a very long time. Her collection of aged puerh tea would put most professional tea shops in China to shame.

This tea is a special treat. It starts off sweet and builds from there. The aroma is warm bread, tree moss, wild honey, and mountain meadow grass. It brews thick and rich. The flavor is on the savory side with early notes of smoked green beans. This develops into a citrus vibrancy with a finish of honeydew melon. This tea will brew forever. It is a very satisfying tea, and we hope an intriguing one.

"Intrigue is just a cut above the rest for the price. 2018 Intrigue is a complex sheng with a long laundry list of flavours that evolve as you drink. If you love your tea to make you think and put a puzzle together, this is the perfect tea for you. "
