From Shuangjiang Mengku Tea Factory

“Spirit of Tea” is the most premium regular production that was produced by Mengku Rongshi since 2009. It is entirely wild arbor tea!

Mengku Rongshi tea factory is well-known for its de-centralized processing “huts” that allow the tea to be quickly processed in small batches on the tea mountain. The time it takes to bring the fresh leaves to town from remote areas is too long leading to excessive wilting.

Spirit This is one of the highest grade tea cakes that has ever been produced by the Mengku Rongshi tea factory and is a limited quantity production! It is entirely wild arbor tea hand processed and stone-pressed.

Certified Organic by OTRDC China!

It’s a cold, blustery day today and I just want to crawl back into bed, or like, an entire bathtub filled with delicious tea… Neither of those fantasies are about to happen so I’ll have to settle for some Mengku Spirit!

Not that that’s a consolation prize or anything, because this sheng is just lovely! It’s remarkably mellow for only being five years old. Sweet, mouth watering, with a slight lick of astringency, this pretty much hits all my favourite sensations with a tea. I feel so relaxed and almost giddy drinking this, like after you’ve eaten a huge meal at the holidays. Very gentle and warm qi. The compression on this cake is also excellent and easy to pull apart which I love.

The flavour profile is wonderful! Fruity and softly floral, vegetal, and ever-so-slightly earthy. I’m having trouble picking out particular flavours though. God I wish I had bought a ton more of this before the cakes sold out, going to snag as many samples as Scott has left online. I wonder if the 2014 Mengku Spirit is as tasty, will certainly have to try that.

I used 8 grams of tea in a 180ml gaiwan.
Brewed in 95°C water with one 20 second initial wash.
Managed to steep out 8 cups before the flavour dissipated.
