1990s Menghai 9062-300g Zhuancha
This is the first production of this 9062 recipe from Menghai. This 1990 brick is made from a mix of sheng and lightly fermented shu puerh. The taste is thick and smooth, with good huigan, saliva and oily texture in the mouth.
The shu characteristics are quite muted – I couldn’t be completely sure of the shu content until I checked the wet leaves.
It lacks the complexity of some similarly aged sheng bings, but apart from that I find it difficult to fault this tea. A pleasure to drink.
