    This stone-pressed cake of big leaf sheng pu'er is made from old growth 'Qiao Mu' leaf and silver buds blended for a perfect, smooth, and sweet Xingyang flavor. This cake is only about five years old, yet it is full of complexity. The dominant camphor notes are very promising for aging. The sweet aftertaste and smooth mouthfeel make this cake a great example of the Chinese "classic" idea of what great sheng pu'er should be.


  • 'When we opened the wrapper we were stunned by how beautiful the silvery buds and leaves were. Sweet and aromatic, this pu'er is just like a classic ideal young sheng should be, and is definitely moving towards greater depth. smoothness and complexity with age.'
