The cake made from the sun-dried raw leaves (available here) harvested in 2006 Spring. Even with the dry-storage condition in Taipei, the wrapper suffered some bug damage (hence the sale price) – but the cake inside is not affected.
From the yearbook of Xi-Zhi Ha on this tea. It describes the old tea plantation in Nan Nuo Mountain was largely (70%) covered by the rainforest, which frequently has moisture thick cloud cover hanging over. The tea made from leaves of this old plantation has a rich fruity flavor and a thick and satin-like (jelly) texture.
Please note that some of the wrapping paper of the Puerh tea cakes might be torn because of many years of storage.
However, we’ll try our best to pick the most intact Puerh cake for you and pack the tea cake nicely. If you can’t accept the condition described above about Puerh tea, please choose our other tea selections. Thanks.
