  • Raw Pu-erh :

    Pu-erh tea is made from Yunnan large-leaf varietal of Camellia Sinensis. It is typically processed into compressed cakes, bricks and tuos. Pu-erh is particularly special because it can be aged for decades or longer, always changing and (in most cases) developing more depth and texture. Raw Pu-erh (生茶) is the traditional form of Pu-erh, and is sun-dried and compressed. Ripe Pu-erh (熟茶) is fermented during a 40-50 day period under-going a mellowing process that changes the tea into something dark red-brown in color.

  • Aged Raw Pu-erh Tea
  • Guangdong and Banna Stored Pu-erh Tea :

    Wet stored Pu-erh teas have a unique taste and aroma. This is due to their storage condition in hot and humid climates like Guangdong, Xishuangbanna, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The wetter storage conditions produce a more aged taste and a darker tea soup. Some people prefer this type of storage and many consider it be "Traditional Storage" for Pu-erh. We avoid offering any teas with noticeable white molding or other mold or spores visually present, or those with a moldy taste. To be sure our offering is considered "dry wet storage".

  • Cha Gao (Instant Pu-erh Tea) :

    Cha Gao - Instant Pu-erh Tea 茶膏 :  This specialty of Yunnan province uses a technique to extract the liquid from the tea leaves and then solidifies the liquid into shapes which can easily be dissolved in water to make tea. 'Cha Gao' literally means 'tea paste', and this technique evolved from a process developed in the Tang 唐 and Song 宋 dynasties, while the process of making Pu-erh Cha Gao in particular was enhanced and perfected during the Qing 清 dynasty, which was considered to be the pinnacle of 'cha gao' quality. Unfortunately, imperial techniques employed during the Qing dynasty were lost with the collapse of the Qing dynasty in 1911, and attempts to revive the industry in subsequent decades fell short and the practice of making tea-paste practically vanished. Now, with modern technology it is possible to produce tea-paste that is of similar quality to that which was produced during the Qing dynasty. One of the benefits of 'cha gao' is that it concentrates the chemicals found in Pu-erh tea to a very condensed and potent form. It was for this reason that it was widely considered a form of medicine during the Qing dynasty, with the 'ability to cure 100 ailments', especially concerning the gastrointestinal tract.  When preparing, use one unit per 500 ml of water and pour the water over the unit little by little to allow it time to completely dissolve; some cha gao also require that they be placed into water that has already been poured.

  • Hai Lang Hao :

    Hai Lang's brand message in his own words: In 2003 I tried to officially register the label Ming Xiang Ya Yuan, which rolls off the tongue and invokes an image of a fragrant tea garden.  However, this name had already been registered by someone else in a small teahouse in Beijing.  I then tried lengthening the name to Ming Xiang Ya Yuan, but this too was already registered elsewhere.  So I tried the name Hai Lang Hao (海浪号), which is my internet name, but this turned out to be registered by another company as well, even though I still use this name regularly.  Actually, the official brand-name that my tea is currently registered under is Xiang Sui (香随) which I believe fits the characteristics of my tea the best.  It means that the fragrance, taste and feeling given off by the tea tends to linger and follow you everywhere you go.  My only real requirement for my teas is that it satisfies me, like I said earlier, by providing a pleasant feeling in the mouth and throughout the body.  My goal is to simply produce good tea which is satisfying to the customer, so If I am able to do this successfully, that is enough for me.

  • Menghai Tea Factory :

     

    Menghai Tea Factory (勐海茶叶厂): Menghai Tea Factory was formally established in 1940 by a group of over 90 tea professionals with origins from all over China. It is possibly the oldest specialized tea factory in Yunnan Province. Because of this, it has a solid reputation that is well respected by Pu-erh tea enthusiasts. It is located in Menghai county of Xishuangbanna (西双版纳) prefecture, which is renowned for being one of the birthplaces of Chinese tea culture. They were one of the first two tea factories (along with the Kunming Tea Factory) to come up with the 'wodui' (渥堆) method of ripening pu'er tea in 1973, and have a series of recipes that are undisputed as some of the finest ripened Pu-erh teas available. Formerly under the umbrella of the state-run CNNP, they went fully private in 1996 and adopted the 'dayi' (大益) logo. 'Dayi' means 'great benefit', which is meant to point out the great benefit that tea has on the body, the spirit, and human relationships.

  • Xiaguan Tea Factory :

     

    Xiaguan Tea Factory (下关茶叶厂) Xiaguan Tea Factory is located in Xiaguan, near the old city of Dali (大理), and is especially famous for the production of 'tuocha ' (沱茶). This region of Yunnan has a very good temperate climate with clean water and tall mountains, which of course they attribute to the quality of their teas. 'Tuocha' has a characteristic bowl-shape that was said to be developed for easy transport on caravans and ease of trade. Tuocha was first produced in Xiaguan in 1902, although the Xiaguan Tea Factory was officially established in 1941. This brand of tea has won multiple awards nationwide and their tightly-packed cakes produce a refreshing and energizing liquor with a strong raw Pu-erh taste. These teas are highly sought-after by Pu-erh tea collectors, especially in Guangzhou and Taiwan.

  • China Native Products Imp Exp :

     

    CNNP (中茶) : CNNP (Which is stands for and is short for China National Native Produce & Animal By-Products Import & Export company) was the original state-run enterprise that managed all of the major tea factories in Yunnan, including Menghai, Xiaguan, Kunming, among others. Most of these were privatized in the 1980s and 1990s, but CNNP runs under the label 'Chinatea' and still uses the original red and green '中茶' logo. This red and green logo is perhaps the longest-used logo in the Pu-erh tea world. Now it is said that CNNP is trying to make a comeback and are mostly focused on direct competition with the Menghai Tea Factory.
