How to brew loose leaf tea, GongFu style: 


Fenqing Golden Buds Ripe Pu-erh tea cake is made exclusively from the finest leaves picked during early spring of 2013 in Fengqing, Yunnan. This tea is made by farmers who are very passionate about their craft and use a tedious processing method known as “pile-fermentation”. The 45-day process involves moistening large stacks of sun-dried raw tea leaves. The leaves are then piled high and carefully monitored to produce a dark composted tea that is pressed into cakes. The whole process requires the constant attention of the farmers in order to produce a top quality pu-erh.
What makes this tea special is the high proportion of golden buds used in every cake. The tea cake has a glossy brown surface with golden tips visible on the top and bottom. It produces a deep red liquor with a soft and smooth mouthfeel,  as well as a mellow taste. Because this tea was harvested in the early spring, it holds a sweet flavor throughout the brews, not typical of other pu-erhs.
