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


„Pang xie jiao; 旁鞋脚. Latin; (Viscum articulatum Burm.f.) Literally Crabs legs. A parasitic plant that grows on trees in sub-tropical regions. When it grows on the tea tree it absorbs flavour from the tree and makes a sweet, refreshing drink, hot or cool. Very limited availability. Puer cakes can be found that have Pangxiejiao mixed into the cake. Normally around 10-15%. It is also part of the Chinese medicine pharmacopoeia – said to have a diuretic effect and is used to clear heat“
