Sweet & clear, perfectly-balanced, with a beautiful lingering after-taste, and crystal clear broth. Our quality benchmark.
Unblended Brick was crafted down to the finest micro-detail to represent the first Kunming Factory breakthrough shou pu-erh from 1975 coded 7581. This tea not only follows the same lines of production, but it puts into play 30 years of experimentation and refinement expressing the maturity of what the process has become.
It is the alpha and the omega. It is the un-carved block. It is perfection!
If stored properly, vintage teas can continue to age over time.
