2000s Tea

The 2000s tea period, spanning from 2000 to 2010, witnessed increased experimentation and artistry in small batch teas, especially Puerh. China experienced a revival of specialty tea production from CCNP (China National Native Products), featuring number-specific varieties like 7572, 7532, and 7581 Puerh teas. The Menghai Tea Factory ramped up production of sweeter Puerhs, while the Xiaguan Tea Factory focused on heavier, more malty-tasting products. Tea farmers also increased production of old tree teas, resulting in distinguished flavors and robust Qi Tea. Puerh demand surged during this period, leading to one of the largest production jumps since the mid-’80s.

The collection below presents some of the most sought-after and best-tasting products from 2000s tea production. All products have been carefully dried, stored, and maintained.
