2009 MengKu "Mu Ye Chun Small Cake" Ripe 150g
2009 Yong De area tea was fermented for 45 days and then dried and graded. These different grade leaves were then blended to provide a nice balanced and textured flavor and compressed into these little cakes, which are composed of higher grade material than used in the larger Mu Ye Chun ripe cakes. The tea liquor is a deep red wine color that is already very clear. Yong De area fermented tea has a unique aroma and flavor with both wood and earth tones and a little incense spiciness.

Picked up this tea from Aliexpress King Tea about a month and a half ago. Just now getting around to trying it. It was bittersweet in the first couple of infusions. This quickly went away and I was left with a sweet ripe puerh. There was a fair amount of fermentation flavor to it, I’d say it was prominent for the first four or five steeps. There were some notes of chocolate in there and certainly a nice sweet taste. It did develop a fruity taste in later steeps. This is one well done puerh. The fermentation was not too heavy and did not taste of fish. I would definitely think of buying more of this one. Except I probably won’t because I just have so much ripe.

I steeped this tea fifteen times in an 85ml yixing teapot with 7.6g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min, 2.5 min, 3 min and 3.5 min. At fifteen steeps the tea was not completely played out. With longer steep times I would have gotten a few more steeps but fifteen steeps is enough for me. This was one excellent ripe and not at all expensive at $17.99 for a 150g cake.
