Pu-erh Tea in Bamboo Leaf Tube (80 Cups) Ripe Puerh Tea (7.1 Ounce)


Main concept behind our minicake line is convenience and use of traditional package.


Natural leaf of Camellia sinensis var. assamica sourced from tea plantations of Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province, China.

After leaf is plucked, fixed, rolled and sun-dried it goes to our production facility for wet-pile post-fermentation. After fermentation lose leaf tea is screened, graded and pressed. This product was made of broken leaf for the convenience of pressing and brewing.


Tea is pressed in a form of small flat cake which can easily be divided in 2 parts.

20 minicakes are wrapped together in paper tube. The tube is wrapped into traditional pu-erh package material - bamboo culm sheath.

The weight of minicake is about 10 g, so one part of it is enough for brewing 400-600 ml (13-20 oz) of tea for one person. While whole minicake is enough for a tea party with family or friends.

Minicake is medium-pressed, so it can be crushed evenly with bare hands.


Minicake can be brewed in any way you like. We advice to start with tea-water ratio about 1:100, water temperature - just of the boil, brewing time 3-4 min.

Considering fermentation, leaf fraction and size of this tea we found it to be most suitable for following brewing methods:

  • French press
  • Pour over
  • Clever Dripper
  • Teapot with sifter
