2005 Yang Qing Hao “Yiwu Cha Wang Gushu” Raw 500g
Pure YiWu gushu sheng cake.
“Cha Wang” translates literally as King Of Tea (茶王).
“Yang Qing Hao (Yang-Ching Hao) was started by Taiwanese pu-erh collector, Yang Shi-Nan. Mr Yang has collected and studied pu-erhs since the beginning of pu-erh hype in Taiwan as early as 80’s. His rich knowledge about pu-erhs and a dissatisfaction towards the modern “recipe”-based pu-erh makings led him to try to revive the pre-60’s anituqe-grade pu-erhs’ premium quality and tradition. He lives in Yunnan every year from late Feb to May to fully involved in every processing step of his pu-erhs. Every step, from wrapper material selection, raw leaves purchasing, to final indoor drying of the cakes."
