Recent Tasting Notes

I have come to admire and appreciate puerh cakes produced by Mengku Tea Co. Ltd. Golden Buds is a blend of smaller and medium sized leaves picked, fermented and pressed in 2009. The brew is dark and yields a very smooth tea – robust and rich in mouthfeel and flavor . Readily available from several ebay or Aliexpress sellers, this mini cake is a must-try and a great value. Maturing nicely as Mengku teas do.

This puerh is very good. It has earthy tones without having that “composted” odor or flavor.

On the first hot water pour, it gives off a very earthy tea scent, but the aroma is evanescent, replaced by a more traditional black tea smell.

This is a solid performer in your cup. Beautiful reddish orange color, reminding of a autumn sunset. The tea has body to it and just a teeny tiny amount of hou yun, not much, and had this been an aged raw puerh, I am certain it would have been there.

My only regret about this puerh is that I did not buy two beeng cha when first purchased!!!
