From Chawangshop

This cake is composed sun-dried arbor material from two villages – Bangdong (邦东乡) and Matai (马台乡) in Linxiang area Lincang city, including 17% maocha from Xigui (昔归). Pick two leaves and one bud in early April. Medium to tight stone pressed in a local small factory.
Intensive and typical fragance of Mengku teas. The tea soup is golden and clean, thick and full, stimulating in mouth and throat. The tea seller was personally involved in purchasing process to avoid a lot of unnecessary intermediate cost. Very pleasant tea but inexpensive!

Probably one of the best (and safe!) buys. If you are going to make an order at Chawangshop (or taobao maybe) I recommend to try this pu. Highly recommended to anyone. At this price, it’s a steal!
I didn’t expect that cheap Mengku cake could be SO good. I tasted a lot of Mengku young shengs: different vendors, different villages, different prices. This cake is a winner!
When I smelled the sample, it was outstanding! The strongest “floral & honey” aroma. When I tasted the soup, I was surprised again… Beautiful scene without any doubts! Reminds me a lot of a mix of the best of Mengku, excellent Nannuo and good green tea.
Thick and potent for a Mengku sheng. Definetely more “beefy” than most of Mengku. I can only imagine how good is pure Xigui gushu. Maybe I’m wrong but I believe in aging potencial of this cake.
One of my everyday choices. Usually I blend it with something different: something nutty (jingmai) or something solid as a rock in terms of taste (menghai/bulang) or something fruity (some autumn youle/yiwu). Everytime the result is great!

If you like this Mengku cake, I recommend you to try another great Mengku from Chawangshop – 2009 Ba Hu Cun Qiao Mu Raw Puerh Tea Brick. I’ll review BaHu later.

Tea is very fragrant! During the year the taste significantly changed, became more acute, bright, a little honey. The fragrance of flowers is of secondary importance. At the forefront of sweet aroma of spices, and nectar, which are difficult to identify.
