Lucky 7 Puer Cake:
Perfectly sized for trying something new, the 100 gram Lucky 7 Puer Cake is a very pleasant, drinkable shou puer. Though sold as an individual tea cake, Lucky 7 gets its name from the traditional way in which many puers are sent from Yunnan — in groupings of 7.
Shou puers are known for their earthy character, which is encouraged by a processing method called ‘wo dui’. Puer tea leaves are moistened (wo) with water and stacked (dui) in piles to undergo a unique post-fermentation process, giving the tea a dark, inky color and a rich, smooth flavor.
Ingredients: Puer Tea Leaves.
Sweet shou puer with a pleasant mushroom quality and notes of dried plum and mandarin orange peel.
