This Golden Melon tribute Pu-Erh is steam-pressed from Pu-Erh tea leaves and named for its plentiful golden tips and attractive melon shape - symbolizing bounty and prosperity.

Storage: Keep Jin Gua Pu-Erh in porous wrap or container to allow it to age further. No direct exposure to sunlight and water.
