Hailing from China’s famed tea growing Yunan province, Gu Dian is the most premium (Shaolin Master, if you will) of Puer teas. Yezi’s Gu Dian is vintage 2005—so far back that the iPhone was still an idea in Steve Jobs’s head, and you couldn’t “poke” anyone on Facebook!

Gu Dian is available in 12.3 oz. / 350-gram disks. The resulting brew is deep red, reminiscent of a glass of fine wine. Gu Dian is smoother than a Herbie Hancock song and has forward-facing caramel notes. If you visit Hong Kong, you will find that many people favor a particular tea shop not because of its location or the polite manners of its proprietor but because of the distinctive flavor of the establishment’s Puer tea. Needless to say, the shops with the best Gu Dian are the shops that get the most traffic.

My mother loves pu-er tea, so I decided to sample Yezi's Gudian. Finally this morning after breakfast we had time to try it. I was very pleased with the liquid color, deep rich burgundy. This tea's flavor had an unusually smooth sweetness, I would say mix of honey and olives. We did five infusion. This was my first pu-er tea, and I enjoyed it with my family. Thanks to Yezi for the memorable morning.

This is my favorite of the three Pu'erh teas at Yezi I've tried, which is saying a lot because I liked the others as well. Nice and bold but smooth flavor. It's a perfect morning tea for me, to get my day going.
