From Yunnan Sourcing

An exciting new release for 2009 from Six Famous Tea Mountain Tea Factory of Menghai! Expertly fermented (fermentation overseen by Ruan Dian Rong herself) Menghai area tea was used to compose this high grade blended ripe tea cake. What’s even better is that the tea is Certified Organic by OFDC China, and each cake comes with an analysis report certifying it free of contaminants. This is a good clean ripe cake that will age wonderfully!

This is one of the best lighter fermentation ripe puerh that I’ve had yet. A lighter sweet and mellow blend with a very enjoyable rolling smoothness with each sip, where the silky texture is complemented with lighter slightly malty notes in the background. Absolutely no traces of harshness or earthiness/mustiness in this wonderful blend. A very wonderful puerh that I’ve already bought an entire tong of which is the first time I have done so and I have not ruled out going back for a second or third tong.

As I have become more familiar with my steeping preferences for this tea, I have become more and more impressed with it. It has a complex floral, earthy, and mellow flavor which is becoming addictive to me. I took this to a potluck last night, and quite a number of folks tried it, and liked it. I am increasing my rating of this tea.

Yunnan sourcing has one cake in stock! I saw they had 2, I bought the other. Don’t know why they were suddenly in stock.

This tea holds a special place in my heart, it was the first pu erh cake I ever bought, going back a couple of years. I was looking for an organic ripe, and this was practically the only one i could find. I drank the entire contents over a period of months, western style at the time. I noticed YS had a couple cakes in stock last week, seemingly from nowhere, as I was making my last order during the recent sale. I was curious how I’d like it now that I am an experienced ripe pu drinker.

The tea is pretty good now that i try it again. Not great, but good. It is pretty smooth, though there is still some bitterness and harshness. But it lasts through many infusions. Kind of a clean lighter taste, with hints of coffee. If you insist on an organic tea, though it’s not clear what that really means in China, this is a pretty good one.
