The exact date/factory of this cake are a bit difficult to peg (our best estimate is early 2000’s), but the tea has a smoothed out aged taste, clean storage, and quality material. The cakes are made of jiaji (甲级 – grade A material) and are very bud heavy. The fragrance and flavors are already well into a middle aged woody sweetness.
