Description:

Mengsong is one of the oldest ancient tea area in Menghai. Baotang old village is located next to the ancient tea garden. The ancient tea gardens are at an altitude of 1800 meters above the mountains. We tasted many kinds of Maocha and this is one of the pure Gushu(Ancient tea trees) tea samples. This tea has soft texture - mildly sweet and flowers aromas. Slightly bitter, cool and refreshing feeling left in the mouth.

Mengsong Gushu Maocha

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

After 2013 Chawangpu "Shuang Shu", which is a blend of Jingmai and Mengsong, I reached for the bag of gushu maocha from Mengsong Baotang.
The beautiful fresh scent faded away from the bag when unsealed, it smells something like a green tea. I was very careful with the bag of macho not to crush leaves. They are really great, up 5 cm long. Smell of dry leaves is very pretty. I put more maocha on the table and I was enjoying beautiful material and honey - floral scent of very long leaves.
After flush, wet leaves smell realy great. It is a concert of flower, honey scents.
The first infusion 15s – infusion is very soft, fresh. It nicely slips into the stomach and then it fills mouth with sweetness. There is no trace of bitterness in the aftertaste, just a sweet, floral flavor. Cha Chi is warming my belly.
The second infusion 7s - after swallowing there is a flash taste of roses for a short moment ... Now; the infusion contains a delicate bitterness of wild leaves. You can observe a cooling effect after inhaling via mouth. At the end there is dryness and intense sweetness coming from the throat. Tea has great energy – my belly is shining as a bulb and slowly activates the head.
The third infusion - 15s - bitterness is quite strong, it significantly stimulates salivation. I am trying to identify a specific fresh flavor that is returning to my nose after a sip of tea .... It's like a freshly laundered clothes :D... which then changes into a sweetness in the mouth.
Fourth - 20s – infusion is now dark yellow, very full flavor, fruity - floral tones, astringency on the tongue. Energy has already reached the top of my head.
Fifth infusion 25s, 30, 40 , 50, 60.
It was a pleasant tea time while studying Mengsong area.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„The important thing of all this tea drinking and learning is not so much the drinking itself, but the critical reflection and evaluation that takes place simultaneously. Forget about what others tell you – what do you feel and think when you’re drinking this tea? How does it compare with what you have tried? How does it challenge what you already think you know?“
