Experience the taste of the wild tea gardens of Bingdao with this raw pu erh tea cake. Bingdao is located in Bangma mountain (also known as 'West Half mountain) in Mengku.

This well-pressed round cake looks beautiful, and we can clearly see it's made from high quality material. Due to its uniform and medium tight compression, it's also effortless to pry with a tea knife.

Honey, rock sugar & cooling sensation

This raw pu erh tea is very pleasant to drink from the first steep: it features a honey aroma with a sweet aftertaste of rock sugar. There's hardly any bitterness and astringency, and perhaps the most special characteristic of all: it leaves a cooling sensation in the mouth, as if you're inhaling the cool outdoor air on a snowy day.

Affordable daily drinker

If you're looking for an affordable raw pu erh with an accessible taste, yet with plenty of complexity, we can highly recommend this tea cake. It will certainly become your next daily drinker.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
