For this pu-erh cake, Tea Masters Panda and Yang Ming used tea leaves from up to 300 years old tea trees and processed them into 200g cakes. We were especially looking forward to this pu-erh because we personelly like tea fromYibang. The tea trees in Yibang are very special. The tea leaves of the Yibang tea trees are noticable smaller in size and some of them turn under certain conditions purple.
Tea Master Panda was so kind and has left us some bing of this great tea. Since this tea was stored in Sichuan, the home of Panda, the riped very well. Sichuan is not as humid as Xishuangbanna but also not as dry as Kunming. In fact, it’s just the level we prefere.
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.
