01/08: American Hao is back on the table

With my brand new passport, and a plane ticket in hand, it seems I am ready to execute the plan to make American Hao.

The most important part is that I have hooked up with a Sr. teamaker in Xishuangbanna, who had years experience in making premium Pu-erh tea cakes for private collectors.

For the batch 801 product I am asking:

Pure Premium Arbor Material havested in Spring 2008, Yes
The traditional processing methods are strictly followed, Yes
All done by hands, Yes
Pressed by a stone mold, Yes

The key issue is to make a product with the same or better quality than most well-known premium products (a few names popped up in my head).

I am sure it could be done. The maocha has been processed and selected, a sample of it would be sent for evaluation by a group of connoisseurs in Kunming.

These are my goals:
A premium cake to be envyed
A great cake for long term storage
A tasty cake for consumption and gifting

Within 3 months, these lucky ones in USA would be able to taste the tea, just in time for Christmas!

Good luck on this project, as it sounds very promising. The American Hao #1 was quite poor compared to many other puerhshop offerings, certainly not worth $28.00 for the quality of a $10.00 cake. I look forward to trying this next batch.

Again, good luck, and perhaps you could offer samples this time?
