Few selected aged puerh cakes and curated samples USA group buy

by toby » Jun 12th, '16, 01:14

Hi, I started this group buy in a puerh Facebook group and was told to post here too.

You might have met me here, on Instagram (@toby8653) and r/puer (shoegazedreampop) before.

I’ve been sourcing puerh and making tasting pack for people in Melbourne and would love to share it with people in America too.

Just want to check if anyone are interested in something like this:

A) Good Value Aged Raws + a very good ripe

Around 380g of tea per share, 1/4 cake of:

1) 2003* Blue Mark raw iron cake; (Origin Tea used to sell them)

Very nice material, strong chaqi, aged quite well already and elegant. Still need some time though.

2) 2006 Everlasting “Red 99” raw puerh cake;

Everlasting is found by "the father of Yi Chang Hao. The 99 series started at 2005 (green 99) and this is the second in the series. Nice huigan and very balanced blend.


3) 2005 Xiaguan Thick Wrapper Tradition Fonts T8653 raw puerh iron cake;

1st batch of 8653 iron cake by Xiaguan in 2005. I am a huge fan of 8653 iron cakes. I have tried 1999, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005(four different batches)and 2006 (two different batches) and this one is in the top 3.

4) 2012 Ru Fu Bulang Big Tree ripe puerh (pressed in 2014)
Medium level frementation (60% cooked), Bulang sweetness, almost no dank fermentation smell/taste

All Southern China Dry Storage.
$95USD all inclusive*

B ) 10 years old + Dayi and Xiaguan sample sets

10 bags of 10g raw samples from Dayi and Xiaguan from 2003 to 2006.
2006 Dayi 601 0622, 2005 Xiaguan FT8653-5 non-iron and more…(trust me, I will surprise you :-) )

All Southern China Dry Storage.
$75USD all inclusive*

I will need 4 people or more interested in package A to get it going.

$10 off if you order both package.

Please let me know if you’re interested ASAP. Vendor who sell the 8653 and all the samples are doing 10% off til Friday Bejing time.
Please confirm by 6pm Wednesday (15JUN) and pay by 6pm Thursday (16JUN)k
To make this group order work,I’ll need 4 people to split the cake. If there is less than 4 people, we could consider splitting the cake half or 3 ways.

my source said the iron cake was made in 04, or 05.
Tea, EMS from Southern China to US, Postage within US and beers for the tea breaking/sending faires in US and me.

What's the status on this, did it ever get off the ground or has it long past? I'd be interested in this or something similar.

It has passed and i have done two more curated boxes since. If you need some tea, DM me your email address. Currently i am not doing cake split. But curated box with smaller sized cakes/tuo/bricks and 10-25g samples.
