Arts in Pu-erh making

To many Pu-erh lovers, the appreciation for Pu-erh goes beyond its wonderful taste. A piece of Pu-erh Bing Cha is a piece of arts work by itself. Things like its outside wrap, inside label, and its shape and tea leaves all suggest the level of craftsmanship of its manufacture.

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.
