Menghai "Gong Ting" means the palace ripe Pu Er tea. You will also see it referred to as Menghai Imperial Ripe Puerh Cake. Due to this name, there is a high requirement for the Maocha. Only specially selected high quality tea buds are used for tea base. The tea soup is smooth, subtle and mellow, with high and charming aroma.

Clean and smooth with a bit of maltiness and a slight hint of pleasant bitterness in the background. Found the sweet woodiness which I tend to enjoy in my shu. This Dayi production is not as sweet as some ripe teas I have had recently but I very much enjoyed this tea session. Decent longevity for a shu – I took it through eight infusions and each cup had robust flavor. Those fearing strong “wo dui” will be glad to know this has little to none. This one is an easy drinker.

DigniTea

I purchased this beeng three years ago.

tea123 – Looks like Grandness on Aliexpress still lists this tea. I did not purchase mine from Grandness but I (and others) have purchased other things from this seller. It seems that their products are authentic.

tea123

Thanks. I shall wonder whence your tea came from shall I?

I think Berylleb was selling this as well. I’m pretty sure I have this tea and obtained it from Berylleb on EBay. It’s a 200g bing if I remember right.

DigniTea

That’s it. You can compare the photo on the Steepster page and the photo on the Berylleb site and see that the Chinese characters on the top (the cake’s name) are the same. The one difference worth noting is that the Berylleb cake is missing the logo image on the left and right of the wrapper. Mine is the first pressing but this one may be a later pressing. Remember that I purchased my cake three years ago (for $22.43) so the price increase to $32.39 is reasonable. The seller I used (JK Tea – had to do a little digging to find this; after all it was 3 years ago) seems to still list it with a photo that matches my cake but they will charge you for shipping.
