From the same producer of our loose-leaf Shu Cha are these hand-pressed dragonballs. Using raw material handpicked for pu'er, it's processed similarly to a mao cha, the sun-drying technique used to finish processing results in a tea with tender sweetness. Notes of orange peel and molasses, these dragonballs are ready to brew as is. To benefit from its good aging potentials, store some and allow them to develop deeper fruitiness and earthy qualities with some time.
Pressed teas are generally a third of the volume of teas in its loose leaf form. These pressed teas are exactly one serving (6g) and they are easily stored for traveling and storage. Each produces roughly 4 cups of tea or 10+ infusions brewing gongfu cha. Bring a few on the hiking trail or as gifts!
