Slices of Sheng

Why have a cake when you can have a slice? It's Pu'er à la carte, with quality mao cha pressed into a very thin wafer, then cut into individual 8-gram serving sizes. The individual packaging makes it the perfect Pu'er for travel and obviates the need for measurement: simply use a whole slice or break one in two for your gongfu cha session. Available individually, in cartons of 6 slices, and boxes of 4 cartons.


Warm and fruity, the still-young Slices of Sheng tumble apart with the scent of fresh plums or cape gooseberry. Balancing astringency and sweetness, the freshness of buttermilk with the spiciness of clove, it's a spectrum of flavours captured in a slim package. A surprising delight for the Sheng connoisseur.
