Broken Silver is a type of Shou Pu'erh, which is a fermented black tea.


Named after its likeliness to ancient silver coins from old Chinese Dynasties, Broken Silver is a truly unique tea. It is infused with Nuo Mi Xiang leaves (the traditional South East Asian herb), which literally translates to 'sticky rice fragrance'. 


Our tea does not have any Nuo Mi Xiang in it. Instead, it is infused for a few hours in a special purpose-built steamer. 


The flavour is reminiscent of red bean dessert and sweet glutinous rice, with the profile being creamy, thick, and chocolate-y.
