A Note From the Curator:

Less of a refined tea by nature, these chunks were chopped off a giant log of fermented tea. This tea is an experience, with its rich history and unique taste profile.

The tea's taste could be described as having a deep and complex earthiness in character. Images of forest floor, and barnyard scenes emerge from the teas thick liquor. A consistent base of light smokiness and minerals is present throughout the infusions along side a savoury quality akin to mushroom broth.

Enjoy this tea in pretty much any style. It can be steeped, hit in a gaiwan, chucked into a mug or even straight up simmered for 15 minutes on the stove (Try it).
