Arts in Pu-erh making
In comparison to regular cotton paper wraps, high quality 100% hand made cotton paper wraps with traditional mold compressed prints not only can provide longer term protection to inside Pu-erh cake, but also are good traditional arts pieces.
Speaking of inside labels, those of Jing Chang Hao Pu-erh are Pu-erh inside label collectors’ sought after items. The inside labels of 40s Jing Chang Hao Pu-erh had a beautiful painting of Qing dynasty tea plucking picture.
A Pu-erh Bing Cha’s compressing technique is shown in its shape and tea leave presentations on the surface of the cake. A good compressing technique does not only affect the appearance of a Pu-erh Bing Cha, but also affect a Pu-erh’s quality. Comparing to machine compressed Pu-erh Bing Cha, traditional hand compressed Pu-erh Bing Cha is less flat and will age faster. Historically, Jing Chang Hao was famous for their superior compressing techniques and beautiful appearance.
