This Oripuerlab's 2nd generation Jia Mu pu erh tea features a distinct camphor wood fragrance. The cake consists of small tea leaves which relatively intensively pile fermented, producing a woody, earthy and dark tea soup with a sweet after taste. 

Camphor wood fragrance

This the unique camphor wood fragrance that transforms into sweetness in the mouth, which makes this ripe pu erh tea stand out.

Mi Lin Village

According to Oripuerlab this tea cake is made from leaves picked from Ancient tea trees in Mi Lin village, Yunnan. After experimenting with different materials from more remote areas in Yunnan, they discovered that processed tea leaves only from this particular villages resulted in a rare camphor wood fragrance.

Note: Oripuerlab is also known as 'Jee-Puer' or 'Ji Pu Hao'.

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.
