A 100 gram tea cake nestles perfectly into ones palm; it is small enough to be portable, yet thick enough to age perfectly. It is an affordable form to store high-quality tea by utilizing a whole bamboo-leaf “Ti” that encloses 5 cakes.
All our cakes are stone-pressed, ensuring the best brewing experience either in the exact moment you receive our tea, or years later.
The fresh leaves have been harvested during the first week of May, 2018, and pressed at the end of August, 2018.
They have been pressed by stone, to guarantee the best leaf quality both now and in the years to come.
The tea cakes, called “bing” in Chinese, are sold individually or in “Ti”, that is the traditional way to wrap them. Each Ti has been hand-wrapped using dry bamboo leaves, and it is the best material to age pu’er. We think that it also is the most charming!
With every five cakes-“Ti” there’s a wooden tea cake knife (“chadao”) for free.
