Type: Ripe (fermented) Pu-erh (grade: 1-3)
Production area: Bulang and Mengsong, Yunnan Province

Taste characteristics: Brillant Success Pu-erh cake is the product of an unprecedented collaboration between Tea Master Vesper Chan and the historic Xiaguan Tea Factory, which was established in 1941. During its early days, Xiaguan Tea Factory primarily supplied compressed Tuo Cha (birds nest-shaped pu-erh) and heart-shaped pu-erh tea to Tibet. In 1975, it was first to export pu-erh tea to France and subsequently Japan.

The tea is made with selected leaves from large arbor trees from two major tea regions and the leaves were fermented by skilled tea masters who adhere to traditional fermentation techniques with advanced utilities equipped by the state-of-the-art Xiaguan Tea Factory located on the foothills of the pristine Cangshan Mountain in Dali, in Northwest Yunnan. The resulting product is a ripe tea that is thick, bright, and smooth with a hint of burnt sugar.

A raw version of this tea cake is also available for purchase.
