Corrected Tea Notes:
Earlier today I wrote a tea note on this S.Mengku sheng. Unfortunately, the tea I had enjoyed so much over the past two days was labeled incorrectly (these two teas were mixed up in the small tasting bags I had prepared last week.) My correct notes now indicate that this is a solid, more typical S.Mengku production, with nice age on it. Good leaf quality – mix of nicely rolled large leaf pieces, stems and a few whole leaves. Reported by the manufacturer and confirmed by Yunnan Sourcing as quality material from organic old trees high up on a mountain. Two quick and rinses and 4 steeps into the tea now. A bit astringent with a bite to it; a bit of tongue tingling; after four cups, my mouth and throat are rather dry. Quite a decent production and I have enjoyed my session with this tea but I may hold out for a year or so to go back to it and see if it might smooth out a bit more. My 68% – 71% storage should help it mature into something even better.
