90s Songpin Hao Pu-erh Tea Cake
Yiwu Songpin Hao Puerh Cake (易武宋聘号生饼)
I asked a tea vendor in Guangzhou, which semi-aged tea cake was less ‘wet storaged’, this was recommended. In comparison with Blue Dingxing tea cake, this one got more tips/buds.
The cake was made of wild arbor tea leaves harvested in Spring from Yiwu mountain, considering it a truly authentic rare and unique Pu-erh tea. It went into aging in a wet storage in Guangzhou, then placed in a dry storage to improve its condition. A common practice adopted in Hongkong and Guangzhou for a raw Pu-erh tea so that it delivered a taste of a good semi-aged Pu-erh that was in its adolescent age.
You might find a number of bug’s bites on the wrapper, but don’t be alarmed. It is normal for this type of product. At least you know bugs don’t mind to share some good stuff that is pollution free.
