Premium blend of first flush of spring tea * Batch 201

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 2009-2011 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

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

This tea is the blend of first flushes of springs 2009, 2010 and 2011 from Menghai, pressed into cakes in 2012. The cake smells very fresh. It is firmly pressed and is relatively thin. Leaves are rather small. It's not easy to break off a whole piece, it crumble away a lot. Wet leaves smells very nicely sweet. The infusion has a subtle spicy aroma. The flavor is really full, aromatic and sweet with a subtle smokiness. The taste is nicely balanced. Very simulative tea. Price seems to me fine - $ 14. It is a good tea for everyday drinking. It will be interesting to compare to the same tea from 2009 ($ 34), what is the bland of 2006-2008 years.

I must say that it took me a while to master the preparation. Tea is very fast. Best if you manage to break off the whole piece of tea and add a little bit of loose leaves. It is enough to use just a smaller amount of tea. I give about 4 grams per 170 ml gaiwan. Longer steeping will easily produce very bitter infusion. 4 g per 170 ml - 100 ° C - wash - 15s/5/10/15/20/25/30/35/40/45/60

Quotes - Pu-erh

„The best test is if, when drinking tea, there are any of prickling, tingling, numbing sensations on or near the tip of the tongue. If this is so one can be reasonably certain that agro-chemicals are present.“
