Should I buy a cake from a famous factory?
There’s no right answer to this. The quality of the cakes from one of the large factories is often more stable, and the pricing is more transparent. With small brands or white labels, it’s more tricky, but there's a chance you find a really good deal. For the latter, you do need advanced tasting skills to judge the quality. What’s also worthy to note is that no matter how good the raw material is, carefully storing pu erh tea might even make a bigger difference over time. Fortunately, you can rely on us for making sure you’re ordering a cake that’s is aged under good conditions.
