2007 Mengku Arbor Pu-erh Tea Cake
2007 Mengku Arbor Pu-erh Tea Cake (勐库乔木青饼)
This quality cake is made from Shuangjiang Mengku in the Lincang area of south-western Yunnan. The leaves used are all from arbor trees in a mountain that tops out at 2,200 meters above sea level. Lincang is synonomous with high quality raw material used to make Pu-erhs and such famous producers as Xiaguan, Nanjian, and of course the CNNP have used leaves taken from these areas.
This cake looks pretty with all big leaves inside out, loosely compressed, it brews a tasty aromatic golden yellow liquor with a mellow character. Recent years have proven that the arbor trees of this variety will age well.
