    1998 Menghai Factory - Red Mark Red Ribbon
    The 1998 Red Mark Red Ribbon (勐海茶厂红中红丝带) is one of the most famous and high quality cakes produced by the Menghai factory in the late 1990s. It has a signature red ribbon embedded in the cake, and this particular batch has benefited from great storage in Taiwan with natural humidity. Liquor - cola colored with a reddish orange tinge. Aroma - sweet dates, medicinal, aged agar wood. Taste: Dates and goji berries, old leather, flavorful tannins, complex, with a sweetness that builds through the infusions. Mouthfeel - thick, full, some fine silt. Aftertaste - subtle, enticing throat & tongue coating huigan. Chaqi - very noticeable energetics, starting in upper chest like an inflating rising bubble, can get a little giddy. Spreads to the arms by end of session. Stamina - up to 10 infusions. A fantastic, rare find.

    1998 Zhongcha 8582
    Made in 1998, this 8582 recipe raw puer cake is just as good as contemporaries produced by the famous Menghai tea factory, but is available at a much lower price. A cake for drinkers, not just collectors. Aged in Taiwan, it is neither dry not wet but somewhere in between.

    Premium Tie Luo Han 2016
    This premium tie luo han is pure "zhengyan", meaning sourced from within the protected wuyishan nature reserve. The dry leaves smell of roasted nuts but the wet leaves smell herbaceous, with a strong hint of fruit. The tea liquor is nutty, mineral and slightly bitter at the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is thick and malty, charcoal swirls up the inner cheeks. A beautiful floral aroma lingers in the empty cup. One of the best yancha we've ever tasted.

    Bulang Secret Garden 2014 Spring
    With prices rising for those famous puer producing villages, we've explored further afield to bring you great tasting cakes from those undiscovered places, where value can still be found. This cake is from one such "secret garden." The aroma is brimful of nectar, honey and flowers. Yet true to its Bulang roots the wet leaves have a whiff of smoke, a base of fried yellow beans, moist earth and damp logs. The flavor is classical Bulang, bringing a righteous amount of kuse, but not overpowering, with an airy huigan left on the breath. This is an approachable cake, even for Bulang beginners, but we recommend shorter steep times for best results.

    Xi Kong 2014 Spring
    This is our favorite cake from our 2014 Spring production. The gaiwan lid gives off dandelion and wildflowers, with traces of cocoa and tobacco. It tastes delicious too, with sweet nectar in the soup, and a few drops of melted butter. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous, silky smooth. A spot of huigan dots the top back of throat. Sublime stuff. We highly recommend this one!

    Lao Man E 2014 Spring
    Our 2014 Lao Man E is a 50/50 mix of bitter & sweet trees. The aroma left in the cup is floral with that fruity sweetness of Starburst candy, plums and that airy freshness of watermelon rind. The wet leaves smell of forest floor and herbs. The tea is delicious, thick and oily, with a subtle sweet note at its core, wrapped in layers of bitterness. The sweetness crescendos over the course of a few minutes, emerging from the bitter aftertaste to reveal a blissful huigan with slight cooling effect.

    Gao Shan Zhai 2014 Spring
    2014 was a near perfect year, weather wise, for Gao Shan Zhai, with dry sunny conditions prevailing throughout the harvesting period. As a result, the aroma is especially good this year, with brown sugar, broad beans and orchids, followed by cotton candy. The soup is not that thick but very clear and beautiful. Best of all is the chesty chaqi, a tight ball forms in the chest, and it feels like your collar bone is vibrating. The flavor has a clear beginning, middle and end with mild tannins rising to a pleasant bitterness, with a slight drying sensation followed by a sweet finish and a gorgeous aftertaste that lingers in the throat, the huigan can be felt with each breath.
