    This is an incredible cake made entirely of leaf material normally reserved for fine golden buds Yunnan Black. The buds are slowly and cleanly fermented before being stone-pressed into loose cakes for further aging. The result is sweet and savory like fine Jin Jun Mei, but with the deep forest complexity of fine shu pu'er. Thick, commanding and singular, this is a cake to invest in and enjoy for many years.


  • 'We got a ton of deep tobacco and savory sweet Japanese nori on the first infusion, along with an exotic cumin and nutmeg accent in the background. In later infusions, the savory notes faded to make way for sweet tulsi and elderflower as well as a hint of fruity raisin flavor.'
