      Produced and stored in Lhasa ( Tibet ) iron hard pressed tea brick in chocolate pattern.

Gentle smokiness would emerge from gaiwan in first steeping but not noticeable in tea itself. Slight honey and caramel-woody notes are dominated...

      Pressed and slowly naturally aged dark tea in the woven bamboo basket. Small top tea leaves release gently bittersweet taste with a typical for Hei Cha sour touch of microbial fermentation folowed by sweet aftertaste. The weight 500g is including the bamboo basket. Sample is difficult to dig out from the basket so please expect some broken bits and leaves.
