"Wild Orchid" GuShu Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake (100g)


Sitting above the clouds on Mt. Wuliang in Yunnan, Lao Cha and his disciple were just about to finish their morning tea meditation. 

— Sensei! I am so full of energy! I feel it flowing all throughout my body, blooming like the orchids that surround us. 

— Why of course, those are the effects of the Wild Orchid Gushu Raw Pu-erh. Now, let's make our ascend. It's time we share these tea cakes with the world. 

Gushu is one of the most desired tea types worldwide. Tea enthusiasts are going out of their way to acquire exceptional Gushu. Gushu means ancient tea tree, and Gushu tea is made from older tea trees aged 200 years and up.

Our "Wild Orchid Aroma" Gushu Raw Pu-erh is made of tea trees that grow at the high altitudes of Mt. Wuliang in Yunnan. The taste is pleasantly astringent, sweet, and sour — an ideal equilibrium. When brewing the tea, you’ll sense luscious notes of wild orchids and green apples.

Arguably, ancient tea trees have cha qi (energy), like no other. The deep-rooted bushes acquire all the minerals, nutrients, and of course, spirit that the pure tea-growing land of Yunnan has to offer. We invite you to try our Wild Orchid Gushu to experience its effects for yourself. Be careful not to become too tea drunk!
