not as complex as the 1996 Orange in orange, but a nice aged tea nonetheless
1996 Menghai 8582
This is a nicely ageing example of the famous 8582 recipe from Menghai Tea Factory. The storage has been clean, with the last 14 years in Taiwan having begun the ageing nicely.
The liquor is smooth, tasting aged, but with a slight edge reminding us that there is further aging to go. The chaqi builds nicely throughout the tea session, relaxing and warming.
