2018 Spring "Stone Lion" Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea Huang Pian Brick from Lao Man'E :: FREE SHIPPING
Bold, brash, heavy handed, and unapologetic; this tea does not mess around. This 200g brick is 100% Lao Man'E, first Spring picking, old tree, huang pian material. Lao Man'E is known for very aggressive puerh. They actually have two varietals Extra Aggressive and Less Aggressive. This tea is "Less Aggressive". That means that it will eventually get sweet. The steeps until then are a lot of fun if you like bold, bitter teas. Since this is huang pian material the edge is taken off but it still packs a punch. This is honestly a very pleasant tea. It will brew for many steeps and reward your patience with endless sweetness. Stone Lion may be a pussycat underneath that rough exterior.
We commissioned this awesome piece of artwork from Tibetan artist 'Tashi' who totally gets us and created such a stunning piece that perfectly represents this tea.
Bonus: We had a ton of Stone Lion stickers made and if you want one just order a cake and we will include one for free. 1 sticker per brick.

So there were some issues getting these bricks wrapped correctly. Some have the wrappers on a little bit crooked. We didn't have the time, materials, or the patience to have the factory rewrap. If you get one that is a little bit goofy just know that the tea inside will be amazing!
Use 5-10 grams of leaves and brew with 75-150ml ( 2.5-5oz ) of water at or near boiling. Rinse once for a few seconds. Start with quick steeps under 10s. With each re-steep adjust the steep time to your taste.
