A rich and delicious fragrance of sweet sticky rice blended with mild woody and earth aroma, this Shu Pu Erh, despite being still relatively young, brings you a full sensation of sweet smooth mouthfeel with an undertone of herb or autumn leaves.
It’s known as Sui Yin Zi in Chinese, which means ‘Silver Pieces’ as ancient Chinese coin. It’s a high quality Shu Pu Erh that also known as ‘fossil tea’ thanks to its appearance and the 10+ brewing. It’s also the essence part of ‘Lao Cha Tou’, which is the best aged Shu Pu Erh. Shu Pu Erh tea has to go through a microbial fermentation process after they have been dried and rolled, which allows beneficial bacteria and fungal bacteria to develop, resulting in the tea's health benefits of probiotic. It also allows the teas to improve with age like a fine wine as time goes by. Unlike most Pu Erh teas that the tea leaves unroll or expand as the steeping goes on, Silver Pieces stay the same shape through brewing.
Pu Er is also known for helping with digestive function making this is a perfect combination both for its health benefit and rich organic taste.

We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
