1980's Zhongcha 8653 (HK/Malaysian stored)


Produced in the mid-late 1980's, these cakes were stored for the first 10-15 years of their life in Hong Kong in traditional, fairly humid storage. They were then bought by a tea merchant in Malaysia and have been stored there since. Their time in Hong Kong has allowed the tightly pressed cakes to age well, with their subsequent storage and ageing in Malaysia allowing the tea to become more refined and much of the traditional storage flavour to dissipate.

The end result is a very pleasant, thick, rich and fully aged puerh tea, with good qi. This a perfect tea for fans of traditional storage done properly.
