This was the last tea from board game night, and unfortunately I’m not sure of the vendor. Coworker & boyfriend said they bought it in BC, but couldn’t remember the company either. It was in a small tarnished gold looking box/cube, with a label on the side kind of weaving an elaborate “story” for the tea about it being a Yunnan origin green tea, made from ancient 400 year old trees… I was skeptical.
The tea itself, I’m almost positive, was actually a sheng pu’erh. Visually, it looked much more like a maocha than green tea and steeped it tasted distinctly like young sheng. Green, bitter, and a little bit tangy fruity. It was actually pretty nice, but I didn’t have the heart to ask what they paid for it because I just had a gut feeling it was probably A LOT. I was very appreciative of them for sharing with me, though!
