White2tea was created by passionate Puer devotees.
We conduct business with a simple philosophy: if we would not drink it, we will not sell it.
Our approach to sales is minimalist.
No flowery descriptions of flavors. No fairytale stories about monks and tea masters. no bullshit.
We provide the tea. The experience is up to you.
We are based in China.

From their website:
This tea was a feature in the 2016 July tea club.
The A&P is a pressed black tea, suitable for aging in the short term. Intentionally processed on the lighter side with traditional sun drying, this black tea has deeper chocolate flavors. This tea was a special commission for white2tea using large leaf Puer varietal.
Each cake is 100 grams.
Prior to brew: There is a depth to this tea just in the feel alone.
Brewed: Brewed this is a darker liquor.
Scent: This tea has a smokey scent.
Flavor: There is a bitter aftertaste as well as a smokey taste to it.
Sentiments: I’m a fan of black teas and this one is no different, with a smokey taste this tea still holds true to be an amazng example of a pure leaf loose tea.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “8“.
Till next sip…
