The 2017 U 2 CAN HELP is a cake we made to help out Education In Sight, a non-profit organization that focuses on helping children in rural Yunnan get the eyeglasses and eye-care that they need.
For each raw Puer tea cake purchased, white2tea will donate one eye exam, a pair of glasses, and eye education to a child in need in rural Yunnan via Education in Sight. Our goal is to sell out 100 cakes and help out 100 kids in 2017. We really appreciate your support and it'd be amazing if you'd help spread the word!
The material of the tea cake is from Lincang, with a strong fragrance and thick mouth feel, this tea is sweet and floral. The loose tea from this cake was featured in the white2tea club in May of 2017. We are not selling samples of this tea, it's about the charity as much as the tea.
Even if you aren't into this tea cake, you can still donate to Education in Sight and get involved with their cause. Visit their website, or take a look at the information below to learn more about their mission.
Education In Sight is a non-profit organization whose vision is a China where every rural student has the eyeglasses they need to see clearly. Over 30 million students across rural China don't have the eyeglasses they need to see clearly in school. As a result, they suffer from significantly poorer academic performance, and much higher drop out rates. At Education In Sight, we work with local government and private partners to bring high quality eye exams and eye care directly to students inside the classroom, so they have no barriers to clear vision and can achieve life-long success.
To date, Education In Sight has coordinated over 150,000 eye exams, and delivered over 19,000 eyeglasses to students in Yunnan province. Their goal is to solve this problem for students both now and in the long-term, so that every rural student has the chance to see clearly and succeed.
Old Reliable was pressed in 2017.
Our infamous house blend; a solid daily drinker ripe Puer tea that you can count on. An excellent combination of value and quality, the Old Reliable is a blend of several years of material, so despite being pressed in 2017, it is ready to drink now and will only continue to improve over the next few years. A smooth, sweet, thick ripe Puer tea with a classic Menghai character.
Grandpa's was hand pressed in 2017.
Named after the term coined by blogger Marshaln - our Grandpa's ripe Puer tea is an 8 gram ball that is meant to be tossed into a cup, mug, or thermos and brewed with very little attention. Just add boiling water and enjoy. The Grandpa's has a smooth body and a classic Menghai character.
