2004 Yiwu Old Tree Guafengzhai Pu-erh Cake


The tea from Guafengzhai is regarded as one of the best Yiwuteas, along with the tea from Mahei and Gaoshanzhai. These premium teas are generally called 'Yiwu Zhengshan' teas. In Spring 2011, the price for these premium teas went through the roof, we could not afford them. Luckily we found this rare 2007 production.

However, this tea cake was compressed in 2007 by using 2004 maocha found in the warehouse, part of tea leaves were exposured to wet condition, and became dark - showing in the spent leaves. What a pity! The lesson learnt from this tea cake is that the old maocha is not exactly the best thing to preserve the taste and the aroma of good raw materials. Nevertheless you can still find a good Yiwu tasting profile when brewing this tea. After all, it is a Guafengzhai tea, smooth and woody.
