We were very lucky to get these four-year-old handmade tea bowls from Auntie Ai, letting us all taste what a few years can do to our beloved Mountain Gate. Also, these balls are completely handmade, including the compression. Rather than using a stone-press to make discuss cakes (bing), these balls are hand-compressed, which takes a long time and lends the tea more character. They were stored in Taiwan these four years, and have changed quite a lot. (Read more about Mountain Gate tea
Due to inflation and rising prices in new puerh tea every year, this four-year-old Mountain Gate is actually cheaper per gram than the 2016 version is!
Each of these cakes comes hand-stamped with our own Guanyin Light Meets Life stamp on handmade rice paper. Every cake is a different weight, since they were all compressed by hand, but they are roughly 200 grams, give or take 10-15 grams. The minimum donation for each is 60$ +shipping.
