Description:

The raw materials of this cake came from villages in Myanmar, its north border on small Mengsong mountain. Tea trees are about three hundreds years old and remain unmanaged. The natives living in isolated areas where transportation is difficult, they carry the tea on the backs and walk to the border. The tea is not expensive but does not come by easily.

Pleasant surprise

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

The first infusion was quite bitter, probably because it's Gushu (wild tea trees) and also this year's tea. It should lose its bitterness late on when the raw cake will be properly stored. Since the second infusion bitterness has subsided and later almost disappeared. It smelled sweet, very pleasant smell in the cup. I do not know how I would describe the taste, as herbal - flower, but I like it very much. For the price of $ 14, I'd say that this is an excellent tea, certainly adept for buying a cake - if not the entire Tong (5 pieces) ;-)

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Nèi piào (内票): A larger description ticket or flyer packaged loose under the wrapper. Both aid in assuring the identity of the cake. It usually indicates factory and brand. As well, many nèi piào contain a summary of the tea factories' history and any additional laudatory statements concerning the tea, from its taste and rarity, to its ability to cure diseases and effect weight loss.“

Quotes

„ku se; 苦涩 - Bitter and astringent. The nature of new raw Puer is a little astringent and bitter, followed by a sweet aftertaste. However, a bitterness with no sweet aftertaste is not typical of Puer and an astringency which is not comfortable would not be considered good tea. “
