Shou Pu-erh Cha Gao

Shou Pu-erh Cha Gao


Cha Gao literally translated means tea paste. However, the substance is not at all pasty and is more like a solidified rock, which dissolves in hot water.


This speciality of Yunnan province uses a technique to take the liquid from the tea leaves and then solidify the liquid into shapes that can easily be dissolved in water to make tea. 


These mini 1gram bricks are individually wrapped and perfect for making tea on the go. 


Please note, price is per 1 brick only.




  • Brewing instructions

    There are different option how you can enjoy your tea:

    1. Dissolving 1g brick these in about 300-500ml of hot water.
