Availability: In stock



This cake is produced by one of Yunnan’s most famous pu erh makers, known as the Haiwan Tea Factory. It's pressed under it’s premium brand ‘Lao Tong Zhi’ which means ‘Old Comrade’.

By just removing the wrapper, we could sense a strong fragrance of this raw cake. The strong and fatty leaves are relatively tightly compressed in a round cake. While the cake was compressed in 2015, it was made from a blend of 3-5 years pre-aged leaves (mao cha) at that time.

Brewing 8 grams of this tea result in a golden yellow soup which is translucent and bright. The taste thick and smooth. It starts slight bitter and highly fragrant, but quickly transforms into a caramel like sweetness that covers fully covers the mouth. Then the ‘cha qi’ kicks in, increasing our mental state and spirit. This is a highly welcome boost, as we’re now ready to work after this wonderful tasting session.
