The fresh leaves of this Yueguangbai white tea, from the Nannuo mountain-wild forest side of our land, were harvested during the first week of May 2018 and pressed at the end of August 2018. Their sweet honey flavor doesn't tone down after two years of aging. On the contrary, their sweetness is enriched by the natural woody aroma of the fermentation process. They were pressed by stone, to guarantee the best leaf quality both now and in the years to come.
A 100-gram tea cake nestles perfectly into one's palm; it is small enough to be portable, yet thick enough to age perfectly. It is an affordable form to store high-quality tea by utilizing a whole bamboo-leaf “Ti” that encloses 5 cakes. All our cakes are stone-pressed, ensuring the best brewing experience either in the exact moment you receive our tea or years later.
The tea cakes, called "bing" in Chinese, are sold individually or in "Ti", that is the traditional way to wrap them. Each Ti has been hand-wrapped using dry bamboo leaves, and it is the best material to age Pu'er.
With every five cakes-“Ti” there’s a wooden tea cake knife (“chadao”) for free.
