Why we chose this tea?
A very good mid-aged tea at a good price. 
The tea was stored in Guangzhou till 2012, and in Massachusetts since then. It's a very clean and aged nicely, and the storage is relatively dry for Guangdong region. 

The tea is a typical style of aged sheng made of Menghai leaves. It doesn't have a lot of aroma, but has nice liquor texture and great potential to be further aged.

This tea is NOT our regular product. The $1 charge of this tea will only cover part of the sample processing and handling costs. We will not be able to afford selling this tea at $1 for 20g as a regular product, and it's not a practical size (the whole brick is 1kg) for us to carry it as a regular product. Therefore, as a limited edition sample, we can only sell this sample to people who are placing an order, and include this sample into the order. This sample will not be sold separately. This tea is limited to 1 sample for each order. And buyers are welcome to take this sample again when placing another order in future. 

The limited edition sample will be available while supply lasts. The purpose is to provide new and seasoned tea drinkers some experience of inexpensive shu with solid quality.
