This 200g iron cake (tightly pressed) is a lovely ripe tea Produced by the famous Haiwan tea factory in 2006. It is a sweet, gentle and soothing drink that impels you to drink more and more of it. When we brew this in our shop we notice that every cup is always empty when we pour the next round, and this rarely happens with any tea.
We don’t stock much Ripe pu-erh because we do not like the fishy and muddled taste that so many of the have. This is an exception – its clean and soothing and great after a day of drinking a lot of raw pu-erh.
The cake is tightly pressed and we simply smash it with a hammer and put it in a clay jar for ease of use.
