What does 7572 stand for?

7572 is a code that stands for a recipe/blend for a pu erh tea. The first two numbers ’75’ refers to the year a recipe was first introduced. The third number ‘7’ stands for the type of leaves used. This can range from 0-9 depending on the size of the leaves. In this case it’s 7, meaning that relatively large leaves are used. Finally, the last digit stands for the factory where the cake is made. In this case number ‘2’ stands for the Menghai tea factory. See below the full list of factories:

  • #1: Kunming Tea Factory
  • #2: Menghai Tea Factory
  • #3: Xiaguan Tea Factory
  • #4: Puer Tea Factory

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.

Do you offer wholesale service?

Yes, it’s possibly to order wholesale online from us. For this tea cake it’s the best to order 46 pieces, because that’s exactly what fits in the box, perfect for save shipping and further storage.
