These very aromatic little bricks of tea is as colorful as they are tasty. They are made from a blend of 5 year old shou-Puerh leaf and spicy tasting Snow Chrysanthemum flowers.

These flowers are a desireable, high-altitude flower from Kunlun Mountain in Gansu Province, China. The flowers are picked in late summer and sun-dried and hand-sorted into various grades. The taste is sweet and spicy, and the flowers are often drunk alone as an herbal tea or added to strong tea such as shou Pu-erh for a new taste treat. As with many flowers and herbs, Chinese medicine recommends Snow Chrysanthemum for health and fitness.

A whole bamboo wrapped pack contains 5 small bricks of tea, each weighting 110 grams.
