This cake was made in 2003 from the prescription of Mr. He Sihua, who is an Honorary Director of Yunnan Tea Industry Association. He is the one that discovered the ancient trees in Simao area and has been in tea industry for more than 40 years.

The cake adopts ancient tree leaves from Jingmai tea mountain in Yunnan province, made from Longqian tea factory. The trees are all ancient around 1,000 years old, so it is also called as a cake of millennia.

Details: Finding an older vintage pu-erh can sometimes be a challenge, as they often can be too dirty or musty tasting. This Ancient Tree, however, has a beautiful aroma and cup and comes from a great tea producer in Yunnan.
Dry Leaves: Dark brown leaves pressed into a flat disc. *Note* We do not sell full cakes so it might arrive in smaller, broken up pieces
Liquor: Oak brown
Aroma: Earthy, wood flavors with a hint of roasted beets
Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
Body: Medium-bodied
Flavors: More mellow than the aroma, but still earthy and dry, almost like the skin of a peanut or walnut
