Notes from our Chief Tea Officer:
In contrast to our Mount Nan Nuo cake, Mount He Kai is softer yet fuller. If Mount Nan Nuo puerh is all about "Shan Yun (山韵)", the taste of the mountain, the minerals in the soil; then Mount He Kai is about "Hua Mi Xiang (花蜜香), the fragrance of flowers and the taste of honey, as wild flowers and bee nests are common sight walking through the arbor tea forest.
