2018 Shu Pu Er Tea Coin (小堆子熟普茶幣, Xiǎo Duī Zi Shú Pǔ'ěr Chá Bì, "Small Pile Ripe Pu'er Tea Coin") - These tiny bings are made from small-pile fermented, single-farm Nannuo Mountain 2018 Shu Pu'er. They are pressed by a unique device specifically designed to produce tiny bings from whole leaf tea. The whole unblended leaf is fermented in small batches using artisan techniques. They quickly produce a dark, rich, earthy infusion. The coin is mostly loosened after the 2nd or 3rd steeping and behaves the same as loose leaf tea. These 7g micro-bings are as delicious as they are adorable. Made of high-grade whole leaf tea, the unique flat shape allows the leaves to be pressed while maintaining their integrity. They're perfect for making tea on the go, each capable of brewing one hearty pot (or two little pots if you break them in half). The leaves quickly sink the bottom rather than floating, making them ideal to steep in a mug or cup. The coin shape hearkens back to the ancient use of Pu'er as currency on the Ancient Tea Horse Road.
This tea was previously called "Itty Bitty Bing Cha"

I've had a few shu puerhs before this one, and I like this one the best. It has the robust and rustic taste of many shu puerhs but it's very mellow compared to others I've had. The coin lasts a long time. Perfect for taking somewhere that you know you will remain at all day. It will get bitter if you over steep so be careful.
Convenient and long lasting wonderfulness.
