Orange Buddy - JuJube Are you inviting a miracle? Wild Jujube has been used for centuries to aide sleep, negotiate anxiety and navigate depression. This imperial grade medicine is a caffeine-free nerve tonic that is very high in L-Theanine. This path leads to a tranquil dangle.

Orange Buddy - Drunken Concubine. Made from leaf grown, hand-rolled and very lightly roasted in Gande village in Anxi county of Fulian province. This stellar Tie Guan Yin overflows with bright, spring aroma and flavor. Named after the Bodhisattva of compassion and mercy, no tea will ease the boundary between dream life and waking life with more care. Are you longing for union with Sweet Mother? Here is your moment of opportunity.
Red Buddy - Wizard's Eyebrow. We have never experienced a Big Red Robe Wu Yi so magical. The aroma is at once nuts, chocolate and floral. The taste shares these elements, but provides a slight astringency to compliment it’s pungent and vibrant nature. Drink this and a powerful focus will develop between your eyebrows, your Will will strengthen and also your drive to self-realize. Make a list of what the biggest you wants.
Black Buddy - Snow Falls on Monkey. This wild harvested she puerh is our first taste of the eagerly anticipated Year of the Monkey. For the only time in recent memory, snow fell on the still developing first flush. Many speculate on how this will play out in the qualities of the tea. Give it a try and come up with your own conclusions.

Orange Buddy - We are psyched to bring you one of the first Wu Yi Rock oolongs of the season, Golden Water Turtle! This grove has been producing this style of tea since the Ming Dynasty(at least)! An extremely complex and thoughtful process helps produce one of the most magical feeling oolongs we have ever drank.
Black Buddy - Green Dragon is a new style of processing Dan Cong oolong that shares some similarity to Anxi Tie Guan Yin. This is the most green, heart centered tea from the Guangdong Provence. Helps with articulating one's desires and connecting the mind and heart in a mushy way.
Red Buddy - 2006 JuJuBe Aroma. This is a small tea factory production but bearing the "nei fei" of the ubiquitous CNNP. It's very common for such un-official productions to take place in the first half of the 2000's. This delicious brick was pressed from larger Menghai area ripe pu-erh tea leaves. So smooth, so soft. Very easy on the body and greatly contributes to a profound since of well-being.
