Origin: Pu-erh, Bulang, Menghai, Lancang, Yunnan

Specificity: This cake is made from large leaves selected from the Lancang and Menghai region. The cake was stored in Kunming. The development and aging of the flavor is a very pleasant surprise! Changtai pressed the same blend twice in 2006. The packaging has the same “Dragon and Horse” design but a different color. The first batch of product has a brown color and the second batch we sell has a red color. Lots of value for a reasonable investment.

You can spot the camphor flavors in the teapot. Third cup – astringency increases and you may observe a cooling effect on your body. Riper taste. 25s - the fourth, fifth infusion; The bitterness is now gone.

Tone: Tea liqueur with golden and sparkling honey, becomes brown over time.

Taste: The liquor is pleasantly sweet. Sweet plum sugar and yellow flowers with a base of smooth, polished hardwoods. The aroma of the rinsed leaves is reminiscent of dates and fruits. Slightly astringent. The color of the infusion is brown.

Texture: It is smooth with a pleasant mouthfeel and a remarkable camphor taste, woody, smoky, moist notes.
