This ripe pu erh tea cake is a testament to the quality of its raw materials: The tea leaves used for this tea cake are harvested from trees in Daxueshan. The combination of a high altitude (2250m) and high humidity results in polyphenol rich tea leaves, which transforms into rich aromatic substances such as theabrownin. The result after careful processing and fermentation: a sweet, malty and mellow ripe pu erh tea with a thick and viscous texture.

The 317 cake has a perfect round appearance and the edges appear tightly pressed. You can observe golden buds on the surface of the cake. The tea soup is bright, transparent, and reminds one of a bold red wine. During the first few preparations you'll enjoy the mellow and thick soup, while the taste slowly becomes lighter and more refreshing. You'll then start to notice a malty sweet aroma of barley.

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.
