A nice light and smooth green puerh that comes off as sweet and not harsh. Enjoyable to drink as a free sample but not something that I would want to buy to have around as a regular tea.

2011 MGH 1106 Mangzhi Green Pu-erh Tea Cake (MGH1106莽枝乔木青饼)
This cake is made by using Fall arbor materials from Mangzhi , Mengla area. Mangzhi is one of old Famous Six Tea Mountains.
This is one rare tea to own since genuine Mangzhi tea was hard to get. The taste is fresh, thick, and aromatic. Yiwu Manluo Tea Factory did a wonderful job to make this stone compressed tea cake.
This 2011 production is way better than our 2010 production, namely 2010 American Hao 1004. We finally learnt the trade.
There is very limited quantity available for this great 2011 Fall big tree materials.

This came as a sample in the mail. From the first sip, I can tell it’s an autumn tea due to its mellowed sweetness and lack of edge or sharpness. The initial steeps are sweet, crisp, clean, and calming. It has a very pleasant warming effect, or cha qi, that moves down the throat towards the gut and spreads throughout the body. This was enough to force me to stop what I was doing and pay attention. The wet leaves have that deep forest sweetness that is indicative to their untamed natural origins along with a slight smokiness that adds more interest to the tea. The empty cup is quite fragrant.
For an autumn tea, I’m quite impressed by what this had to offer, though I can only imagine that its spring counterpart would be that much more impressive. Being that it’s a Mangzhi tea I can understand the price, but I would rather invest in teas with more edge. Overall, while this was an enjoyable tea, the experienced puerh drinker may be left wanting something more.
