From Shuanjiang Mengku

This is the first release of the Mengku “Mu Ye Chun” label! This tea is produced by the Yong De sub-branch of the Mengku Shuangjiang tea factory. It is composed of entirely high-altitude first flush spring raw material from Yong De area of Lin Cang, a totally different area than classic Mengku teas come from. The 002 blend is composed of more leaves and less silver tips. This is preferred over the 001 blend for long-term storage among Taiwan Pu-erh collectors. A strong taste and very infusable.

I was looking for a pick me up and I forgot how relaxing this tea made me last time. It has a nice mouthfeel and is numbing. I am sure it is numbing my senses as well. I am enjoying the heady aroma. I am almost finished the first cup and I feel that easy feeling coming on. I love the way that this Sheng makes me feel. So peaceful and at ease.

I think I recall you doing tai chi…do you do yoga or qi gong? I found the impressions of the effect of pu erhs on energy interesting enough that I’ve asked a martail training buddy of mine who does lots of ‘internal’ martial arts to act as my 3rd party litmus test. Should be interesting.

I have done martial arts in the past but I never mentioned it here.

Amazing how my experiences with these two Mu Ye Chuns has changed so much in the past 8 years. I’m different, the teas are different. This breaths smoked meat and vegetables, really beefy. Opens up with a lot of astringency, with a lot of thick sweetness. This hasn’t aged quite as much as the 001 did and at this point, I don’t like it as much as the 001 at this point in time, it has a really scratchy throat quality that makes the finish unenjoyable. My samples haven’t aged well in the past 8 years (although some of my cakes have), so I’m glad I’m paying more attention to the humidity of my teas.

I got a 25g sample of this one as part of a Mengku sampler pack. I am very impressed! Strong golden color, the initial flavors are a floral mintyness with a slight hint of citrus. The aftertaste has a mild bitterness and astringency, some faint hui gan and maybe a hint of some roasted straw. The flavor profile is very complex and well balanced with no one flavor standing out. I could spend all day picking out different flavors in this tea. It also has a strong deep meditative cha qi to it. I wouldn’t want to do anything that required higher though after drinking this, like taking a math test, but more so I’d rather hang out in a mountain meadow next to a tree and a gentle brook and just relax for a few hours. After sampling this, I’m strongly considering buying a cake if I can find one. Excellent potential for long term storage!

You are tempting me to buy more…..I am already in so much trouble…

I ’ve become a big fan of S.Mengku teas over the past year. There are many very good ones (at very reasonable prices) including this one for sure.
