Dragon Pearls

These sheng (raw puerh) pearls are hand rolled into 7g servings from the mao cha we used to press our cakes in 2018.  If you aren't ready to commit to a whole cake, or like the ease of having pre-weighed portions, this is a great option.  

These pearls comprise first-flush, pre-rain tips which were plucked in 2018 from strictly old growth, wild trees and have a lot going on.  Best when flash steeped repeatedly, this tea is like a slow drip of energy, and really can steep all day.  The aroma is fresh, bright and incredibly floral.  When sipped, the tea leads with an intense burst that is at once dry and silky, leaving a cooling sensation in your throat. The flavor is verdant with notes of dried apricot, and the astringency is beginning to smooth out and embrace it's inner earthiness in the years it's been aging.  

These pearls will only get better over time and supplies are limited.
