Lao Cha Tou (老茶头) is literally translated as “Old Tea head”.

Lao Cha Tou is a special type of Pu-erh tea made from the chunks of leaf material left at the bottom of a fermenting pile during the processing of ripe Pu-erh. At the bottom, under the influence of high levels of humidity, temperatures and lack of oxygen, the tea leaves and buds stick together in dense clumps. In this way, this constant pressure and limited oxygen gives the tea some unique properties and a deep and velvety taste. These nuggets will slowly open when brewed to give many infusions. The first few infusions are lighter and sweeter, but as the nuggets break apart, the liquor gets thicker and stronger.
