Organic Menghai Chen Nian Pu-erh Tea Brick

‘Chen Nian’ in Chinese means ‘old age’.

More and more prople started to ask for a certified organic Pu-erh tea. Made by using organic Menghai material by Menghai Longyun Tea Factory, one of big Menghai factories, it is a safe bet – maybe not the best, but it’s good enough for your daily brewing.

Thick, earthy and enough sweetness are exhibited in its brew. Put it away for a year or two would do this brick a lot of good, in terms of improving its taste.

Yum a fine example of the older style of ripe puerh that caused me to fall in love with puerh tea. It has a slightly earthy taste to it but a good earthy taste to it that is not musty and has a nice sweetness to it.

I received a sample of this with my last order. I decided that it’d be swell to try to drink down my samples, for they’re getting out of control—kind of.

Anyway, I had randomly chosen this tea for this morning/early afternoon. I need to get some stuff done before friends come over for my “Journey of Tea” session. I have a friend who is starting out with tea, and he suggested a few weeks ago that I should host a tea party for a few others he knew, who’d like to get into the hobby, too. Although I’ve purchased samples of tea from companies/others in the past, for him to try, he has yet to trust himself with making tea. So, he occasionally comes over for a tea session.

Now, as for this tea, it is very complex. I’m getting many layers of flavor from this tea: earth, wet wood, honey, and lychee. The sweetness of the lychee really jumps out after the third steep. It meshes well with the wood notes; and gives the earthy minerals a more complex taste. Overall, I’m enjoying this, but I think I can only get a few more steeps from this tea. I’m currently standing at 11—it might last 15-16 total.
