Details
  • This pumpkin pu erh is made from high quality leaves including many small buds. The use of tea buds is intentional, as they change in a pumpkin like golden orange colour through aging.
  • The first pumpkin shaped teas in history where offered as a tribute tea, hence the word ‘tribute’ in the name.
  • This product is aged in dry-storage. The compression level is somewhat less tight than other Xiaguan tuocha, resulting in a more uniform and faster aging. 
  • The taste is remarkably fresh with a sweet after taste. There's a more apparant transformation of flavour throughout the steeps, relative to other sheng pu erh. The brewed leaves look tender and bright.
