2011 YUNNAN SOURCING "MANG FEI" AGED MAO CHA MINI RAW PU-ERH TEA CAKE
Composed entirely from 2007 spring material from Mang Fei mountain in the Yongde county (Lincang prefecture). After picking, the mao cha was stored in Yongde for 3 years until 2010 when it was purchased by us and stored in our Kunming warehouse and then finally pressed into mini cakes during the summer of 2011. The taste is floral and relatively mellow for a Yongde tea. Still the tea liquor and mouth-feeling is thick and pungent but not over-powering. The aging that occurred when the tea was in mao cha form brought out it’s subtle essences while at the same removing much of it’s brutish Mang Fei intensity.
