Typical Mengsong taste, aromatic tea soup, sweet, full and strong, bittersweet long aftertaste.

Good Mengsong

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Beautiful smell of rinsed leaves – flowery-sweet fragrance. Very deep „odour“

The first infusion is fragrant and sweet, with just a little astringency in the end, fast huigan. The colour of the brew is light-yellow and it quickly changes to orange.

The taste is full, outstanding, sweet, spicy and fragrant. Simply splendid. Out of all 5 teas in 2015 ChawangPu Collection is Mengsong the one most fragrant.

Astringency is gentle. Fair warming-up energy.

This is nice tea from Mengsong area. Tasty young sheng suitable to drink now, for those how loves young green puerhs. Fragrant, spicy taste typical for Mengsong. It will also mature well, I guess.

We will also write about Mengsong tea pressed into bamboo - 2014 Autumn Mengsong Bamboo Raw Puerh Tea 500g.
There is also one ripe puerh from Mengsong area - 2014 Mengsong Ripe Puerh Cake 357g – we will write about this one later. Anyway all reviewed Mengsong puerh teas can be seen here.

Very nice tea for the price of $22 / 200g cake (2015).

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Pu-erh shape - Tuocha, Bowl, or Nest - A convex knob-shaped tea, its size ranges from 3g to 3 kg or more, with 100g, 250g and 500g being the most common. The name for tuocha is believed to have originated from the round, top-like shape of the pressed tea or from the old tea shipping and trading route of the Tuo River.[16] In ancient times, tuocha cakes may have had holes punched through the center so they could be tied together on a rope for easy transport.“

„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.“
