Weight: 100 grams (3.5 oz)
Type: Ripe (fermented) Pu'erh (grade: 1-3)
Production area: Bulang Mountain, Menghai County, Yunnan Province

It is not often that ripe Pu-erh engenders a high degree of excitement but this one is definitely an exception: Thick, dense, bold and so delicious. This tea is made from ancient trees that are around 300 years old.  The leaves have been fermented using the local mountain spring water.  After the fermentation process completed, the tea was further stored for three years to stabilize its overall quality.

Premium leave source, perfect fermentation process, and good post-fermentation care are key ingredients for a good ripe Pu-erh.  This tea has it all.  As Master Chan advised Linda Louie, “I believe The Enchantment of Ancient Trees will be the best ripe pu-erh you will have come across in recent years.”

Interesting as I went on
By 
First few recommended infusions 1-3 had a "seafood market" smell not that off putting but it was there. As the infusions went on 4 or more there was less of that market Nose. Taste was surprisingly clean Rich and earthy with a slight medicinal finish. Cake Label was embedded in the cake posed some challenges.
Our responseCake label is called the "inner ticket." It is to be embedded in the cake as a way to authenticate the tea cake. Glad you enjoyed the taste of this tea.

excellent tea

I am saving my 5 star review for a tea I haven't yet discovered that is the best ever; so this tea gets 4 stars. This tea has no flaws, it's extremely smooth and has a nice deep rich taste. None of the flavors are especially interesting, but it is well balanced with no off tastes. Worth the price.
Our responseHi Seth, this is as good a review as I can get from you because you are such a discerning pu-erh drinker. I believe this tea will grow more interesting as the years pass. Thank for your review.
