A wonderful clean and smooth puerh with a bit of maltiness. I would say this one has a medium fermentation level that is darker than most ripe puerh in the growing trend of lighter fermentation levels. Just watch out and pay attention to your time and tea to water ratio as this is a ripe puerh that can be overbrewed with less than ideal results if you do not take care.
2009 Menghai "Da Yi Gong Tuo" Ripe Pu-erh tea
This is an extremely nice Menghai release of a ripe mini cake. This is without a doubt one of my favorite young ripe teas from Menghai. There seems to be little or none of the residual fermentation taste or smell (wo dui) that can be present in ripe teas under five years of age. I personally highly recommend this cake.
