This tea delivers what it promises of a sweet and easy drinking cheap everyday puerh. Smooth but not silky as while it has a pleasant lack of rough edges it does not come close to entering into silky (creamy) territory. I also like how it is the first Puerh Shop private label ripe puerh that is just a simple brick and not the mini bricks that never work out as planned.
2011 MGH 1108 Mangku Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick
2011 MGH 1108 Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick 250g (美国号1108勐库乔木熟砖)
MGH 1108 is made of big tree Mengku materials fermented in 2009 at Menghai.
In comparison with MGH 1104, it’s sweeter, smooth, no ‘off’ (such as dirt/earthy, fishy, pondy, and sour) taste, super easy to drink. You would find it an everyday brew-me-now tea, despite of its poor appearance.
It offers better taste profile, higher nutritional value with no chemical additive, the big tree/Qiaomu/Arbor material IS the essence of a premium tea. The traditional tried and true processing method was adopted in making of these MGH teas.
