(Menghai) Ancient Tree Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick
The pesticide testing has been conducted on this tea, and the tea passed the test against multiple chemicals with flying colors.
I investigated this tea before buying into it. This great looking tea brick was made by using 2010 big tree materials from Sahe area, Mengku, fermented in Menghai. So it should be named as Mengku (Menghai fermented) Big Tree Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick.
Why? well, Mengku big tree materials in 2010 were still inexpensive, while the best ripe tea was always fermented (made/processed) in Menghai.
It brews a sweet and smooth drink, load of potentials. Broad and ripe, with dark coffee and cocoa powder notes out front, backed by steeped plum and macerated black currant fruit. Lingering fig and ganache accents take over on the finish. This has heft but stays defined, with a beguiling smoky hint through the finish.
