For this cake Tea Master Panda and Yang Ming used gushu tea leaves from Mengsong. We selected this tea together with Tea Master Panda and pressed it into Pu-erh cakes in Yang Ming’s boutique manufactory. It is the same leaf as for the Mengsong Dragon Balls. After repeated requests, Tea Master Panda gave us a whole bing from his private collection so that we can also offer pu-erh that is already well matured.
Who are Tea Masters Panda and Yang Ming?
Tea Masters Panda and Yang Ming are good friends and experts when it comes to Pu-erh. Yang Ming is a local tea farmer of Yiwu and descendants from a family with a long tradition in Pu-erh making. Incidentally, our popular Lucky Bee teas are from Yang Ming’s tea fields. Tea Master Panda is originally from Sichuan (hence the name) and came to Yunnan due his passion for Pu-erh tea. In addition to Pu-erh, he is also a Master of calligraphy and has extensive knowledge of Chinese history.
