    An Eloquent Tale

    This is the sort of tea that lets one understand the care that went into its production. With a custard, hazelnut, and toasted corn flavor profile, this tea speaks its own eloquent tale through its sweet and melodious liquor.

    We are often told that pu’er “ages like fine wine”, but that does not imply that a more recent picking holds any less dignity — Lau’s 2022 sheng exemplifies this idea.
