This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy and compare different teas from the same place and deepen your knowledge of this important tea region.
Nectar is an incredible 2005 Yiwu cake that is as thick as honey and equally sweet. It is a great tea to store or to drink, offering the classic old-growth Yiwu taste and soft, gentle Yin energy.
Like the name would suggest, Ordinary Treasure is an often overlooked gem. This 2004 tea cake is a mix of Yiwu tea and old-growth tea and has been traditionally processed. The leaves were grown without any chemicals and the tea has been stored in Taiwan. This is one of our all-time favorite teas and fortunately for us, the puerh market passed it over, making it more affordable for us and you!
Fragrant Mountain is a genuine old-growth Yiwu tea made from wild leaves. Also from 2004, Fragrant Mountain was originally a private order from a Hong Kong merchant. Like Ordinary Treasure, this tea was also produced by the Changtai Tea Company, however it is a higher quality tea. It was stored in Hong Kong until 2007 and then was moved over to Taiwan, where it has been aging ever since.
Fortuneteller is a beautiful old-growth Yiwu tea from 2003. It was made by Fu Yuan factory and is a well-known cake in Taiwan. There is some very mild wet storage on this cake, but it has been aged very clean and is still very vibrant. The liquor is thick and beautiful, with the sweet, wild honey aftertaste Yiwu tea is famous for.
