    It is rare to be able to acquire genuine 90’s pu’er these days, with so much either hoarded away in private collections or simply faked. Wang Yanxin started building her collection in the early 2000’s, giving her access to high quality 90’s pressings before they became so valuable. She has decided to release this 90’s offering as part of an effort to consolidate her storage to focus on new regions and the demands of a very different customer base than a decade ago. This single origin Yiwu cake has actually developed an intriguing floral undertone to complement Yiwu’s classic cooling cedar and sandalwood flavors. Smooth, but powerful and lingering, this is a cake worth experiencing.


  • 'Most pu’er does become more complex over time. Astringency mellows out, darker and richer flavors come through. Textural complexities become more pronounced. Starting with an intriguing young pu’er of high quality with lots of textures and flavors at play will increase your chances of graceful aging.'
