Totem Ripe Minis
We present to you our first custom pressed puerh! These organic ripe puerh mini cakes are 10 grams each and are perfect to take with you wherever you need a tea fix. We chose this specific leaf material for our first pressing because we loved the enjoyable approachability of this tea as well as the fact that it is EU certified organic. All the tea plants are of Assamica varietal and are organically grown and cultivated 4500 ft up Ma Wei, in Simao Yunnan, China.
Leaf harvest, fermentation and pressing of these cakes were all done in 2020. Despite its young age, the flavor of the brew is rich and satisfying with a heartiness that is appealing for ripe puerh lovers. Those of you looking for strong cha qi in your puerh, you will find plenty of it with this cake.
