Tea Nugget - 2013
This very same material was what we used to press our 2011 Mandala Old Tea Nugget Brick. Grown in super pure conditions in the Lincang region of Yunnan, China, this leaf was picked in 2008 and ripened in 2009. Milder in flavor than our other loose-leaf nuggets from 2005, there is alot of room for maturation with these little fellas.

Tea brewing is meant to be a joyful exploration. There are no hard and fast rules. Experiment with the quantity of tea that you use, and steeping times. Enjoy discovering what your preferences are. They may change day to day.
