These area few cakes from our upcoming 2018 Puerh Pressings. They are amongst the highest quality teas we're pressing this Spring, but only available in small quantities, so we've decided to allow preorders for them.

These will be pressed next week by ourselves in Yiwu and allowed to sun-dry. They should be ready for shipping towards the end of May.

This selection of cakes are all Forest teas - growing in protected forests in pristine environments and all from ancient trees.

  • Secret Forest Puerh  - We've previously pressed this tea, both as white tea and as puerh tea.  This one is processed as puerh tea, is from ancient wild trees and is very elegant and refined  £55/200g
  • Gedeng Guoyoulin - From the protected state forest in Gedeng, this is from tall thin trees which shoot up to reach the light in the forest.  The first couple of infusions seem light, but quickly there is a strength and richness that emerges in the tea.  This is a powerful tea that displays all the characters of a perfect, biodiverse  environment and healthy strong trees.  It is a powerful tea.  £185/400g
  • Guafengzhai - From a lesser known tea garden in Guafengzhai.  There's only a few kg made from here each Spring, but the tea is better quality than the more famous tea gardens.  I'm happy with this tea, but unfortunately very limited. £160/200g
  • Guafengzhai Guoyoulin - This tea is also in very limited quantities - it's from tall pole trees growing in the protected forest.  A farmer in Guafengzhai collected this especially for us, but wouldn't reveal where the trees are.  It's a very nice tea.  £160/200g
  • Wuliang Forest Garden - We have a few kg from the first Spring Harvest.  We recently posted some images of this  garden on Instagram.  The trees are were planted by humans, but are in a clearing deep in the forest and very healthy. - https://www.instagram.com/p/BiNs5hEH63D/?taken-by=theessenceoftea   https://www.instagram.com/p/BhxmZi1Hjy4/?taken-by=theessenceoftea   £48/200g

This is our preorder selection.  It will be sent directly from China.  Please don't include other products in your order as our other stock is in Malaysia. Unfortunately samples aren't available for this preorder selection as the quantity is so small. I expect them to sell out before samples would be able to arrive.


Please note: There's been a problem with our accounts & I deleted them by accident. Hopefully in the next few days I'll be able to restore them from a backup. If you'd like to place an order in the meantime, please feel free to check out as a guest. Sorry for the hassle.

Starting at: £45.00
