Pu Erh Master Mr. Zou Bing Liang (邹炳良)
This premium-grade tea cake was elaborately developed and blended by Zou Bing Liang, the Haiwan Tea founder himself. He is awarded and recognized by the industry as the “Master of Lifelong Achievement of Chinese Pu Erh Tea”. Zou dedicated his whole life to the pu erh industry, contributing to the post-war revival, innovation, and even the development of the wet-piling method (to produce ripe pu erh). He may be the single most respected individual of today's professional pu erh circles.
Zou first earned his reputation as the co-founder of the prestigious Dayi tea brand (Menghai Tea Factory). After leading the Menghai Tea Factory for more than two decades, he went on his own and started the Haiwan Tea Factory. Overseeing the development and production of Haiwan products, Zou has built a reputable brand, of which its quality is recognized industry wide.
Liang Xian Pin (良闲品) Tea Cake
The leaves used for this tea cake were carefully selected from the ancient tree (gu shu) tea regions, including Gelanghe, Bulang Mountain, Lincang and Jinggu. All leaves are hand-picked early spring (Ming Qian) at an elevation of 1700 to 1900m, and kneaded by hand in the traditional way.
The name of the series cleverly used the character Liang (良), which represents the last character of its creator's name (Zou Bing Liang). In addition, ‘Liang’ in Chinese also means ‘good in quality’.
