    2001 Zhongcha - Ba Zhong
    This 2001 CNNP cake is colloquially known to pu'er collectors as "Ba Zhong" because it has eight "中“ characters around the central, green "茶" character. Aged in Taiwan and acquired by Tea Urchin in 2014. It has an aroma of camphor and fermented fruit. A manly tea, with a touch of smoke and some bitterness, suggesting Bulang leaves in the source material. Thick mouthfeel, even a little silt-grain at the finish.

    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.

    Chen Sheng Yi Hao 2010 Spring

Our cakes are from the first production run of 2010, and already show promising signs of aging.

    Lang He 2010 Yu Pin
    "Yu Pin" is a 400g ripe puer cake, produced by 郎河 Lang He tea factory under their private label 老茶坊 "Lao Cha Fang." Ripe puerh is Lang He's specialty, the founder Mr. Yang believes there's more artistry in making ripe versus raw, and he always supervises the fermentation process himself. Lang He's lighter fermentation process results in a lighter, sweeter liquor that is free of that fishy wo dui flavour common in heavily fermented shu. The proof is in the pudding. This Yu Pin won the bronze award at the 2010 Yunnan tea expo for best shu puer.
