“A kind of palace grade ripened Pu-erh cake weights only about 200g, which is suitable for new tea beginners to try.” – Angel’s Comment

Our previous Golden Buds Tribute Ripened Pu-erh Cake turned out to be extremely popular among pu-erh tea lovers, but unfortunately remained out of stock for quite a while. We received many requests to restock it, and as such decided to produce a TeaVivre-brand tribute-quality ripened pu-erh 200g cake. To do this, Angel contacted pu-erh tea factories to find a good source for high-quality loose tea to press into cakes; during this, TeaVivre began to design the packaging, and after about half a year, this new cake was finally finished.

This tea follows the one bud, two leaf picking standard, and was picked during the spring of 2015 from Bulang Mountain large-leaf tea bushes. We sifted the shoot tips (the ‘golden buds’) for the tea after the pile fermentation step; this is what allows us to mark this tea as “palace-grade” for its raw material. In order to ensure and enrich the tea’s taste, in palace-grade pu-erh usually other grades of raw materials are blended in – but this cake in contrast is 100% pure palace-grade raw material, with no additives or substitutes.

Pu-erh tea material can be divided into 11 grades, of which “palace-grade” has the most tender leaves and delicate taste; if you are used to strong tea, this one might be too light. However, this also means that it may be perfect for beginners of pu-erh tea, or those who prefer a lighter taste.
