The TEASPEC Arbor Charm tea cake is made from the spring leaves of Arbor trees that originate from highlands 1500m – 2500m (4,921-8,202 ft) above sea level. It features very fine, young tea buds and shoots from the mountains of Yunnan, China. The leaves have been aged since 2005 and the special leaves were compressed into cakes in 2014.
The raw Pu’er tea has a complex aroma that is reminiscent of spring flowers. Its broth is deep amber in color and aficionados can expect a tinge of peach, apricot, and lavender flavor followed by a tangy and slightly sweet aftertaste.
The Sloane Arbor Charm Tea Cake Set includes a certificate of authenticity and provenance, general information about Pu’er tea and brewing instructions.
