Description:

This tea come from Mengsong mountain, wild arbor tea garden. Trees are 80-120 years old, growing wild in forest.¨ We visited this garden in Januar 2015 and very like the place. We bought first harvest which was just 30kg only.

Hand processing in every step and sun-dried, traditional stone pressed in Menghai town.

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 tea that has been preserved for few years is close to green tea in its properties and colour. Its taste is sweet tinged with a little bitterness. Its fragrance is pure and mild and lingers even after the tea is finished. While brewing raw tea, lower the water temperature. Serve immediately after pouring to avoid scorching the leaves and tainting the tea liquid with that smell.“
