1999 BEENG CHA. MENGHAI
A real leathery, cigar aroma. A spicy edge, with lots of sweetness coming through on later brews. Typically earthy, this beeng cha tastes well aged, lots of woodsy tones and an interesting mouthfeel. A full on astringency bite in the first few brews (strong for some but leaves the mouth with a great coating), it soon mellows out to give a great aged sweet mustiness.
