From Taiwan Sourcing

Stored in Hong Kong for years before moving to Taiwan, this tea inherited the classic “artistic font style” raw tea from 1950s. The original “Artistic Font” from 1950s is already a famous and pricy tea in today’s market. However, the cake you are seeing here is certainly not trying to be the original. It was and still is trying to create a new fame of its own.

The reason for it being called “Artistic Font” by the market was due to the font it used on the wrapper. Unlike usual font you might see, this wrapper used a “Song Font” (宋體) to show its difference. After years of aging this tea has turned itself into a beautiful ruby-like color while delivering a long lasting rhythm.
