250 gram Mandala Old Tea Nugget Brick - 2011
Another one of our ripe products from the Lincang region - a super clean growing area, far away from roads and cities! Picked in 2008 and processed into ripe tea in 2009, the nuggets that make up this brick are milder in flavor than some of our other cha tous, but still a joy to drink both in shorter and lengthier infusions. Warming, stimulating, and gentle on the palate.
