A set of 4 single origin, raw pu erh tea cakes (Lao Ban Zhang, Bing Dao, Xi Gui and Yi Wu Gua Feng Zhai) made from tea leaves harvested from ancient trees in Yunnan. Hand-picked and manually stone pressed!

Lao Ban Zhang (357g): This tea cake is from Lao Ban Zhang village in the Bulang mountains of Yunnan. At an altitude of 1500m, the ancient tea trees enjoy a mild summer and winter climate, allowing the leaves to accumulate a lot of flavour. This cake offers a full texture, intense explosive aroma, and a cooling sensation in the mouth.

Bing Dao (357g): This tea cake from Bing Dao is harvested at an 2200m elevation. It taste like a spring breeze with a floral aroma and sweetness of rock sugar. The texture is delicate and velvety.

Xi Gui (357g): For those who prefer a powerfu pu erh tea, this Xi Gui cake is a must try. It starts with a powerful floral aroma and a pleasant bitterness that quickly transforms in a sweet and exceptionally long lasting after taste. When compared to the other three cakes, this Xi Gui cake has the strongest hui gan (after taste) and cha qi (tea energy). The wet leaves appear thick, elastic and clearly showing their veins.

Gua Feng Zhai (357g): This tea cake is from Gua Feng Zhai, in the Yiwu tea region. The thick and smooth entrance of this tea is intriguing, followed by a beautiful mountain charm and honey sweet taste. The aroma is thick and heavy but balanced, the bitterness is restrained, and the after taste has great stamina.

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.
