I had the 2012 batch of these, but I drank several and gave the rest away to friends. They were so well-loved that I will definitely order more. I miss them!

One of these little babies can be infused all day—8 or 10 times at least. It takes a while for the tightly compressed tea to break apart, but it’s delivering deep, fantastic Yunnan Black tea flavor all along. Chocolate, malt, maybe a slight but not unpleasant dryness. I haven’t had them for months but I can still remember the taste and aroma! So satisfying!

Flavors: Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Malt

I’ve been enthusiastically drinking tea for decades; it’s always been an absolute necessity for me. But a few years ago, a trip to the Pacific Northwest, including visits to some Chinese tea shops, kicked my interest into high gear!

I still enjoy a good “breakfast tea” or flavored blend once in a while, but spend much more time nowadays on single origin teas brewed gongfu style. I’m even hosting tea tastings for my friends.

I enjoy all tea types, but lean towards black (red), oolong and ripe puerh. Unfortunately, many raw puerhs seem to disagree with my insides :( I’ll try anything once, though!
