FU Kooi HuLu Puer Tea

This limited 2000 peices worldwide 2010 August HULU shape puer tea raw, will be on display in my house during the Chinese New Year only.

After Chinese New Year I will store it away to avoid light etc, it is very aromatic therefore I must store properly so that I could enjoy the good fermentation after years...

Hulu is a good Feng Shui item to display in the house to chae out evils and bring in Prosperity , Luck into the house..One of the Eight Immortals Li Tie Guai carry a HuLu that he uses to suck evil spirit etc inside...there are many hulu decoration items for sales during Chinese new Year.

Xiaguan Toucha (Special)

Xiaguan special toucha are most popular in China as a gift but I am not sure whether such high price product being popular, as you can only such tea gift to some one who is known to you that he is a puer tea drinker..


Wow this 7 packs cost me RM1580, but how to buy lah when there is no tasting, actually my motto of no tasting no buy do save me from spending more.. 

Only 5 toucha each weight 250 gms..about RM333 per toucha..


12 boxs for RM250 this is within my pocket..

Xiaguan Toucha 2011

2011 Xiaguan toucha this toucha in green box quite popular, most of the tea shops do sell this product.

The color of the toucha bright under stonger light, however darker when under shade, taste wise mild but adding extra amont when brewing will produce a stonger taste for those puer tea veteran who like a stong thick taste..

Lao Char Tea Trading.

Once we step inside the shop, the aroma of the tea so strong n nice to smell after about 45 minutes on the road through Sunday quite heavy traffic...
The aroma of the tea mainly due to the well ventilation, correct temperature, ligthing in the shop etc that permit all tea display to under natural fermentation on the self...


There are quite a variety of ripe n raw puer tea for your selection beside the toucha,
however my 2 hrs visit only permit me to concentrate on Toucha series, as the shop not open on Sunday but the mangement team Cody Tan n Heng willing to just open for our visit.


to test taste other brands beside xiaguan toucha, we need to visit again, maybe after Chinese New year.
