A nice thicker and smooth ripe puerh. Early infusions had a slight malty edge mixed in with the smoothness that gave way to pure smoothness in later infusions. Not sure if it is because it is a nugget puerh or simply the longer age but this one while it is a good tea unlike the other Mengku ones seems to be lacking the unique Mengku taste to it.

2006 Mengku Old Chatou Pu-erh Brick Tea (勐库老茶头熟砖)
The half kilo Old Cha Tou (old tea nugget) brick is the choice for many hard core Pu-erh tea drinkers. The taste is very smooth, sweet, and enduring – multiple infusions are possible – lasting for the whole day long, the good stuff!
