Mengku Imperial Ripen Pu-erh Tea Cake (勐库宫廷熟茶)

‘Imperial’ aka ‘Gongting’ is the top grade tea made for imperial/royal court, so to speak.

This is a gold award winner from Mengku Tea Factory, representing the best ripen Pu-erh tea from Mengku area. You won’t be disappointed as this tea is in its prime for drinking.

The pu-erh cake brews a thick red liquor with a mellow taste, very smooth and a sweet aftertaste.

This is a very good example of fine ripe puerh at its best. Mengku like Menghai puerh is described as having its own unique scent taste so it is a more unique taste to it among puerh, both are different but very good. This one has brewed up a dark ruby red with an enjoyable smooth mellow richness with a bit of sweet taste with expected Mengku scent taste. If you’ve had Mengku ripe puerh before and enjoyed it I’d strongly recommend this cake to you but if you never had Mengku puerh before I’d recommend buying a sample first as while it is good it is not a typical ripe puerh.

I made my way through this fine cake in the past two years and it just got better and better. The sweetness seemed to intensify and the already heavy, mellow body just got thicker and soupier. Yum! I think a reorder is in store. As an afternote, I like dealing with The Puerhshop.com because they never misrepresent their product.

I am definitely a total amateur when it comes to pu-erh, so this won’t be the best info for real pu lovers. This was another sample sent by a certain someone. Thank you!

When I first smelled it, I thought I could detect a bit of muskiness (the kind of musk in some nice incense) and some smoke. I don’t like smoke, so I was nervous about tasting it. It does have a bit of a smokiness to it, but it goes very well with the other flavors, is very mild, and isn’t the main flavor, so I don’t mind it. I’m not sure how to describe the other flavors. It’s very interesting (again, note that I’m not a regular pu-erh drinker). The description says it’s a mellow tea, and it is fairly mellowing. After having a few slurps of it to get used to it, I think I might be tasting a little sweetness – a sort of sweetness I just naturally associate with tea. To me (my tastes run into the sweet and spicy, typically, so take that into account), this tea is definitely savory. This isn’t what I’m used to, but I think I might like it. This would be a nice one to try if you’re a pu-erh novice and don’t mind a little bit of smokiness.
