Angel's Comment:

Noted for its high proportion of golden buds used in each cake, Golden Buds Ripened Pu-erh Cake Tea has high appreciation and collection value.

This compressed tea cake is made from fine leaves picked in early spring of 2013 from Fengqing, Yunnan. It is exquisitely made with fine leaves adopting pile-fermentation method and has glossy brown surface and golden tips visible on the top and bottom of the tea cake body. It yields bright deep red liquor with soft and smooth mouthfeel and mellow taste. Since it is harvested in early spring days, this tea is high in phytochemicals which helps digestion and remove greasy feeling.
