This old cake is made from leaves from Yunnan that were brought to Guang Dong Province for processing. This practice continued into the 1990's and produced a sought after and collected series of green Pu-erh's. This cake is 40+ years old and had lost all the scent of tea. This shows good aging in a good environement. This tea is similiar to the famous Blue label editions of the 1950's. The taste is light and the brew is amber brown and almost sparkles. The leaves come from the Dai district (where the Blue label was also picked). The processing and compression, though, were in Guang Dong. This was the practice during the Cultural Revolution and it has made this a famous tea. We are happy to offer this fine antique cake. There are no wrappers on this tea, as they were produced with no wrappers, only the inner label with the well known tea TM. Made from 3-4 grade leaves which exhibit a deep brown color, even after many steeps. Weighs about 340 g and makes about 75 servings of this coveted tea.

I haven't tried this tea yet, but the description is a little misleading. When it is said that this cake can make 75 servings, what they really mean is that you can have 75 "Gong-fu" sessions with this tea. This type of Chinese tea is typically put into very small Yixing teapots (approx 5-7gr of tea into a 110-120 ml teapot), rinsed once or twice (probably once for this expensive tea), and then poured into teacups. A very high-quality Puerh (aged "raw", not aged "cooked") can make anywhere from 5-10 teapots-full of the tea before running out of leaf. Sometimes even more. Usually the desired effect of these very-old teas is not exactly how they taste, because often-times they won't taste like much more than flavored water, but instead the "Cha-Chi", which is a type of energy or feeling that your body feels when/after drinking these teas. The feelings can be anything from quite stimulating, to very soothing (almost narcotic). There are many fakes in the market-place, due to extremely rare occurences of any REALLY good, old raw Puerh tea being found outside of Asia. Any that are found will definitely command very high prices because this type of tea is usually hoarded in China, Taiwan, and anywhere else that anyone can find any of it available for purchase. Also, when someone states "60's Puerh tea", that is a whole decade of variance to deal with. Before taking the plunge with Puerh tea, start doing your research. Puerh tea has really been taking hold of the West in recent years, and now the East is capitalizing on our desires for really good Puerh teas. There are some very good reliable sources out there, but it usually incurs a monetary learning-curve before you get the hang of who you can trust, and what Puerh teas may be right for you. BUYER BEWARE! I hope I am not overstepping any bounds by saying this, but a good place to start learning about Puerh tea would be "Puerh Tea- A Westerner's Quest" website. Good luck, and Good health!

Where else can you save $300.00 on tea? Who can pass up a bargain like that? If only I had $1200.00 to blow on tea. Dang! This gets five stars, I says.
