2009 Menghai "Zi Yun" Ripe Pu-erh tea
This is the one of the highest grade premium ripe teas released by Menghai tea factory for the year 2009! It is also the first release of this mini iron cake which is called “Purple Rhyme” (Zi Yun 紫韵）. This is similar to the “Hong Yun” mini cake released in 2008, but slightly lighter fermentation.
Menghai tea factory is the foremost tea factory in Yunnan with more than 50 years of history. Their quality of their ripe pu-erhs have made them the undisputed King of Ripe Pu-erh. This collectable mini tea cake is composed of grade 3 and higher leaves, all smaller leaf fermented material with plenty of flavor to give up when brewed. When brewing keep infusion times very short in the beginning. Sure to be a classic due to its amazing textured flavor profile and limited production quantity.
