Got this as a sample with my recent berylleb order. At first I was totally mystified. The Menghai Tea Factory…makes bagged tea? And bagged ripe pu’erh?

I tore the thing open to get a look. I was doing this in the dining hall at college, and my friend looked over as I pulled it out. We both stared at the tea bag.

“Looks like rat shit,” he said.

Sad to say he’s totally right. This tea not only looks like crumbles of poop, but it just tastes…bad. Plenty of fishy ripe-ness masked by heavy, heavy flower flavoring, and a sickeningly sweet aftertaste. Just…stick to the cakes Menghai. Please?

I concur. These aren’t the best. The Lao Cha now that is a different story.

The Lao Cha cakes? Never tried them, what sellers have them?

It is the little clumps left over from the shou process. They are the ones that can’t be steamed apart to put into cakes. They usually have a couple of years nuggets they make into bricks. Takes forever to get them to open up to brew but they usually go 15 steeps or so.
Menghai makes them. They are usually translated into old tea head or nuggets. Berylleb ha them. I haven’t drank any newer than the 2011 but I have a 2012 aging away for the future.
