I’ve tried a number of these Star of Menghai cakes, and this is one of the better ones. I like it more than the 2010 and 2011 versions, both of which I found underwhelming. This one is a keeper, fairly smooth with a hint of bitterness, deep and rich. This tells me that recipes only can go so far, and that the quality of a tea depends a lot on the vintage, not just the age. And this is cheaper, being young.

Where did you buy this one?

I got a sample from a trade, so I’m not sure where it came from.

I think Berylleb has it Allan.

Grandness on Ali Express also has them, both a 100g mini cake and a full size cake. They seem to have the best price right now.
