This brick is made by using Fall big tree materials from Mangfei, Yongde area. All hand made, it’s sweet, full of flavor, endurable, definitely a worthwhile tea for current consumption and long term storage.

It is a bit milder than MGH 1105 cake. For a sharp taste, go for a MGH 1105.

Free sample w/purchase – thank you. I wasn’t into sheng but wanted to try. It’s nice, some astringent but pleasant. After I had 3 cups there is a tingling sensation in my mouth, kinda cool and minty.

I have heard that Mangfei is pretty strong and bitter. I would think even more so in a young sheng.

Not bitter but hoppity. I feel like it bites my tongue even though I had it some time ago. Kinda seltzer sensation. But it’s not unpleasant to me. Maybe with longer steeps bitterness would come, but I play it safe with shortest possible and under oiling temp
Nice experience for sure

I finally got around to trying this brick a couple weeks ago, and it’s a killer bang for the buck. After gently opening the paper packaging (another great use for that tiny Tuocha pick!), I was impressed by the relatively large leaves that comprised the outside of the brick. It’s not super-dense (like a particular 250g Douji “rock” that I ordered), but it’s firm enough that you’ll want a good picking utensil if you don’t want to mangle it completely.

Once I put the ~3g in my tiny, warmed Yixing pot, I combined my 10sec. wash and a 15sec. first steep into my faircup. I was very impressed by the slightly sweet/slightly astringent first cup, but I LOVED the silky mouthfeel and warming energy that popped up in the later infusions. Usually I’ll make a cup and get distracted by something else, but this one kept me coming back to see how the next cup progressed. I don’t know if I wasn’t using enough leaves (or if I timed my pours just right), but it never quite developed that bitter edge that I’ve come to associate with some young shengs.

I’ve had a couple other cakes and samples that fell flat or didn’t change too much after that first cup, and I’m excited to see how this one ages over time. For something I got on a whim, I’d certainly recommend this to beginners or pu-drinkers on a budget. I’m both of those things, and it worked out great for me.
