2006 Lao Cha Tou… Maybe not

2006 Shu Pu’er – Side by Side Tasting

We tasted a 2006 Lao Cha Tou from a friend alongside another 2006 pu’er from a bing. It became pretty obvious that the 2006 Lao Cha Tou was, unfortunately, a fake. It wasn’t terrible or anything, it just wasn’t what it claimed to be. It wasn’t 10 years old. Having these teas side by side really exposed the age gap. This is something we see too often, and one of the reasons ZhenTea exists. We have the experience and knowledge to detect and steer clear these counterfeits. Too often we’ve seen products like this sneaking into unsuspecting consumer or even vendors hands.
