Description:

An old arbor Menghai blend. Thick body, lingering kuwei [pleasant bitterness], and plenty of oomph. This tea is a continuation of last year’s New Amerykah. The blend is slightly different, focusing more on sweetness and body than on bitterness.

I like this tea a lot. This one is sweeter than the first Amerykah from 2013, but the bitterness is still present. There is just a right amount of energy. It is not a killer like Amerykah 2013. Stamina is not as big as previous Amerykah, but still, it's a great tea.

In regards to used material, it should be blend of old arbour tea trees. Nevertheless, you can find a note claiming it is Gu Shu (wild tea trees) blend on wrapper. Well, considering its bitter character, it is quite possible having some Gu Shu material in this blend. Anyway, it is Menghai material, what is considered good for long term again.

2013 New Amerykah, what was complete Gu Shu and for the price of $69 (in 2014) for 357g cake, that was really bargain! Prices are currently different, yet 2014 New Amerykah 2 for the price of $69,50 (in 2015) is a great deal!

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Bĭng: The tea cake itself. Tea cakes or other compressed pu'er can be made up of two or more grades of tea, typically with higher grade leaves on the outside of the cake and lower grades or broken leaves in the center. This is done to improve the appearance of the tea cake and improve its sale. Predicting the grade of tea used on the inside takes some effort and experience in selection. However, the area in and around the dimple of the tea cake can sometimes reveal the quality of the inner leaves.“
