Description:

This is a newer Menghai release, first released in 2005 and then again in 2006, 2007, and 2008. This recipe is comprised entirely of Menghai county early spring raw material from 2007-2009 mao cha. It's special characteristics are bitter, pungent, aromatic and thick and full in the mouth. The tea quickly causes salivating in the mouth and cha qi is warming.

Tightly rolled leaves lock in the pungent aroma!

Three springs from Menghai - 2009

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

The cake smells nice; aroma is maintained by its very tight pressing. Cake’s margins are thinner and it is not easy to peel off the first bit of tea. It crumbles away a lot. The first infusion - 9 g per 170 ml, rinse 10s, colder water 90°C - 15 sec. Wet leaves smell sweet and after honey. The tea has a pleasant taste, no bitterness, fruity sweet infusion. The second infusion - water again 90°C - 7s. Intense fruity flavor. There is a pleasant astringency in the aftertaste, hui gan. The third infusion - 10s – there is a small bitterness. 10s were possibly too long. Hui gan is very intense. Here comes tea’s energy. It is pleasantly stimulating tea. The tea is naturally bitter. It is necessary to use cooler water and shorter times. I can compare with the same product from 2012. By my opinion it is a good product line. 2009 is slightly more matured, mellow than 2012. 2009 is already sold out in YS. In regards to the note - " The tea quickly causes salivating in the mouth" – it seems to me that I just smell the wet leaves and I start salivating :-) But I rather consider this as Pavlov's dog effect of tea lover :-D

Quotes - Pu-erh


„kou gan; 口感 - Literally mouth-feeling. Dictionary definitions vary between mouth-feel referring strictly to textural character - i.e. 质地/zhi di, others to a broader definition of flavour. In tea drinking it is largely referring to the former, but cannot be easily separated from other gustatory and olfactory sensations.“

Quotes

„The Fragrance of Tea
For the main, Puerh fragrances can be divided into two kinds; distinct and indistinct or explicit and implicit. The Distinct fragrance of Raw Puerh tea is immediately obvious as a delicate, bright fragrance; a fresh, crisp aroma that is uplifting“
