A very mysterious and alluring companion that you can't wait to get to know.

 

When we found this tea in a friend's Kunming warehouse we were surprised that such an interesting brick with considerable age was sitting unnoticed at such a reasonable price. The Lotus Brick revealed itself to be a hidden gem with its comfortable energy, elegant taste, and trace minerality.

 

While doing initial tasting on this tea, our friend and his colleagues kept commenting that it lacked substantial force, which helped us to understand the nature of their criteria and how it different form ours. They seemed to only be looking for high-potency, intense energy, and we sought balanced chi.

Maybe it was too comfortable. We like comfortable, how 'bout you?
