From Mandala Tea

An impressive blend of smaller and medium sized leaves picked and fermented in 2005. Pressed in 2006. Smooth flavor. Maturing nicely as Mengku teas are known for. We have seen this tea acquire nice depth in flavors since we received our first shipment in ‘07. A must-try and a great value given it’s age.

Delightful in lighter brewing while robust and rich in mouthfeel and flavor for those who like a strong brew!

This cake comes from the Mengku Tea Factory, so yes, it does taste fantastic! It actually brews up tasting much older than you would think. So that is a huge plus! That desired almost musty flavor is present and delightfully surprising. It has a classic flavor of sweet plums or figs and possesses none of the awful “fishyness” that can creep in to lower quality pu’ers. Well done Garrett and Mandala on finding this gem of a cake.
