The 2001 version of this cake is a classic, and the cake which we are offering here has been aged in Kunming since 2001. 15 years of Kunming storage has given this cake an aged feeling but not compromising it's character or powerful taste and cha qi.

A classic Xiaguan tuo cha recipe, "Da Zhong" means popular and originally it was sold at a cheaper price than Jia Ji and Te Ji tuo. Purchased by me in 2005 and stored in Kunming since that time. A nice quality tuo with plenty of aroma and strong taste. Aged taste has already creeped in.
