Introducing 2018 Indian Gushu Sheng Cake from Spring 2018 harvest!

A reintroduction of one of the first sheng style teas we made. This is from the first batch we pressed in 2019 January from 2018 maocha. This is one of the most exciting products we have ever made and that too when we had just started Ketlee. We have made quite a few changes and refinements in our processing since then but the nostalgia combined with its perfectly sweet taste makes it an experience worth cherishing.


It has tasting notes of golden raisins, wild honey, sandalwood and figs. The way these come together when you brew is what stands out about this tea, back in 2018 as well as now. We usually do not emphasize on the bodyfeel of any tea as that is highly personal and subjective but this is the perfect candidate if you want to experience a solid Qi.  


This is just a start of the journey this tea has to offer and we are sure we'll be able to age it into something even more interesting in a couple of years and would urge you to do the same. If you like to take control and age your Pu'erh and Pu'erh style teas, you will definitely enjoy adding this intriguing tea from Indian Old Tree forests into your pumidor! Going by the previous years of experience, the tea will evolve into more and more delicious and sweeter versions of itself every few months!
