“An interesting concept, blending white and black tea. It tastes more or less how you’d expect, but the progression of flavours is interesting, with more of a dianhong character early on and aged...” Read full tasting note
“I had a sample of this that I finished. This is new cake. 212F, 6.5g, 12 oz 4 steeps: 2min/2/3/5 Malty, hay, sweet, creamy. The later steeps were better due to lower water temp (200F). I like...” Read full tasting note
“I seriously love this stuff. And not just because it’s got an extraordinary amount of caffeine (which I find valuable in a tea, dangit – just not the make or break element of it). Open the wrapper...” Read full tasting note
“Relatively herbal but not too bitter, able to finish 8oz without getting tired of it. It’s a pretty good, basic travel tea and is good with sweet or savory food.” Read full tasting note


A blend of both white and black tea, Hot Brandy is a completely new style of cake that was born of experimentation. The soup is thick, smooth, and fragrant. It fairs well with both gongfu style and western style brewing. The tea has excellent endurance and can steep for a very long time and can even withstand being simmered or boiled without becoming acrid.

Both the white tea and black tea have been sun dried and should age well together. However, this cake is the first of its kind; how it will age is anybody’s guess.
