2006 Tong Xing Hao Green Puer Tea Cake
Factory: Tong Xing Hao
Harvest Year: Spring 2006
Type: Raw/Sheng
Harvest Area: Yi Wu Mountain

This teacake comes from the famous Yi Wu Mountain in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. This hand picked, stone pressed cake is made from ancient puer tea trees. The company was established in 1733 in the Yi Wu region. Throughout the ages this mountain area provided tea for the emperors. The Tong Xing Hao company only produces a very limited amount of tea each year and its products are classic collectibles. It is sweet and smooth and leaves a moist feeling in your mouth. The color is a crystal clear yellow. It is a great tea to drink now, and is also an excellent tea for aging.

Amount to use: 1 tablespoon of tea to 3/4 of a cup of water (5g tea to 178ml water, or 0.18oz tea to 6oz water.) This tea can be brewed about 10 times.

How to brew: Gently loosen tea from the edge of the tea cake using a tea pick or a butter knife. Place the tea in the teapot. Add *185 degree F (85 C) water to the teapot to awaken and clean the tea. Immediately pour out and discard the water. Add water and brew 10-30 seconds. Serve. Be careful not to over brew this tea.

*This temperature may be approximated by:
1) Using water from a hot water dispenser or
2) Heating water until small bubbles form or
3) Removing a pot of boiling water from its heat source and letting it sit for about 5-10 minutes.
