From Sanhetang Company

To many, the Xi-Zhi Hao brand requires no introduction, for the last 3 years Mr. Chen a Taiwanese man with a passion for Pu-erh has created some of the most highly acclaimed tea cakes on the market. He is extremely dedicated to his work and has been known to hike the mountain trails of Xishuangbanna scouting out the best wild arbor raw material. In this way, he guarantees that if the cake says its “Nan Nuo” or “Pa Sa”, it really is! He selects the best “mao cha” from these areas and oversees its processing from start to finish to make sure it turns out just as he needs it to be!

What if you were to take one of the most famous blend recipes of all time and re-invent it by using only the highest grade material from wild arbor trees? This is exactly what Mr. Chen (with the help of ex-Menghai Tea Factory master tea blender Ms. Dong Guoyan) has done! It is a living tribute to the great heritage of blended recipe Pu-erh! In this case they have used only the best raw material and small batch processing, taking the drinker back in time 20+ years to a time when MOST of the raw material used to make these classic recipe cakes was really excellent quality! This is the 8582 cake, a classic Menghai Tea Factory recipe first formulated in 1985!

Production area: Meng Hai County Other Comments: Highest Grade Pu-erh from Ancient Trees. San He Tang Company Production – (Pressed and packaged in the Mengyang Guoyan Tea factory in Jinghong)

An update to this tea after almost 10 years. Mushroom and leather aroma. Thick soup, with a touch of sourness up front, middle steeps give distinct plum, and generate saliva nicely. Late steeps have fantastic, long-lasting huigan. Best part is the strong, calming happy qi. My drier storage has left this tea with some astringency and punch that I think make it feel full bodied and rich. This cake has also struggled with sourness in the first 3-4 steeps, I think due to colder, drier storage (something I’m trying to gently remedy), but it doesn’t really compromise the tea. So lovely…

Flavors: Leather, Mushrooms, Plum, Sugar
