In 2006 the pu’er market was nearing its highest point, incentivizing reputable producers to put an unprecedented level of quality and care into their cakes. Longyuanhao was founded in 1999 and just reaching their prime under the guidance of award-winning master Li Zhengxing, who earned his fame putting Da Du Gang pu’er on the map. He went all out with a high quality bud-heavy blend for this cake, and has aged it for over a decade in Yunnan. This combination of circumstances give this tea the name Ji Xiang, which means auspicious in Chinese. The tatami wood, dried plum and cooling aftertaste convince us that this is indeed a fitting name.
