2011 MGH 1106 Mangzhi Green Pu-erh Tea Cake 400g
[MGH 1106 - 1329]


This came as a sample in the mail. It's one of those teas that forces me to stop what I'm doing and pay attention. From the first sip, I can tell it's an autumn tea due to its mellowed sweetness and lack of edge or sharpness. The initial steeps are sweet, crisp, clean, and calming. It has a very pleasant warming effect, or cha qi, that moves down the throat towards the gut and spreads throughout the body. The wet leaves have that deep forest sweetness that is indicative to their untamed natural origins along with a slight smokiness that adds more interest to the tea. The empty cup is quite fragrant.

For an autumn tea, I'm quite impressed by what this had to offer and I can only imagine that its spring counterpart would be that much more impressive. Being that it's a Mangzhi tea I can understand the price.
