From Shuanjiang Mengku

High Grade Fermented Ripe Pu-erh!!! Perfect for aging!

A new blend for this year the 981007 ripe tea cake is similiar in appearance and taste to the 2007 Mengku Gong Ting ripe tea cake. This is high quality tea cake that is priced low enough that it can be purchased and stored for a few years to allow for maturation. Since it is a medium to light level of fermentation this tea cake still has a pretty strong “dui wei” to it, while much of the integrity of the leaves and cha qi has been preserved. While is it can be drunk now it would be ideal for drinking one it is 1 to 3 years or older. It will mature slowly for about 10 to 15 years depending on storage condition.

Very heavy cereal smell, with a light orange color liquor. The beeng I have has been dry stored, so it has changed slowly, it does not seem like 2008 tea, but it is still nice. It might be better after a couple more years

Thought I would finally take some time to put down some notes regarding this tea. The dry cake is very tightly compacted but best practices seems to be breaking of fairly large pieces of the beng. After an initial flash rinse of 20 seconds to losen the leaves a bit I literally smelled this tea for about 2 minutes. The warm wet leaves have in my estimation, not an approximate scent of freshly ground wheat flour, and the exact smell of freshly baking bread. This is one one the things that I love about tea, the way the exact same leaves can, depending on processing, and other parameters deliver such incredibly diverse flavor experiences… This is truly one of those teas that offers something I didn’t expect.
