    This is an incredible cake made entirely of leaf material normally reserved for fine golden buds Yunnan Black. The buds are slowly and cleanly fermented before being stone-pressed into loose cakes for further aging. The result is sweet and savory like fine Jin Jun Mei, but with the deep forest complexity of fine shu pu'er. Thick, commanding and singular, this is a cake to invest in and enjoy for many years.

  • 'This luxurious shu pu’er combines the best of yunnan black tea with the complexity of pu’er. The flavor is sweet and full of vanilla aromatics, with infusions that taste like fresh, warm pound cake. The trademark ‘sparkling’ quality of Xingyang’s clean fermentation brings out the velvety quality of the buds.'
