2019 Gushu Sheng Pu Er Itty Bitty Bing Cha
These tiny bings are made from Gu Shu 古树茶 (Ancient Tree), single-farm Nannuo Mountain 2019 Shu Pu Er. They are pressed by a unique device specifically designed to produce tiny bings from whole leaf tea. This fresh sheng pu er is sourced exclusively from centuries-old trees by the Li family of Nannuo Mountain. When steeped at low temperature (~190 F), this tea yields a green-gold infusion with a crisp, sweet taste, a hint of bitterness and a distant floral fragrance that is both refreshing and stimulating. The coin is mostly loosened after the 2nd or 3rd steeping and behaves the same as loose leaf tea.
These seven gram mico bings are as delicious as they are adorable. Made of high-grade whole leaf tea, the unique flat shape allows the leaves to be pressed while maintaining their integrity. The name refers to either the classic musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (West Coast) or the Selena song Bidi Bidi Bom Bom (Texas). They're perfect for making tea on the go, each capable of brewing one hearty pot (or two little pots if you break them in half). The leaves quickly sink the bottom rather than floating, making them ideal to steep in a mug or cup. The coin shape hearkens back to the ancient use of Pu Er as currency on the Ancient Tea Horse Road. Try using them to subvert capitalism in your local economy by using them to trade goods and services directly between individuals!
