Why we chose this tea?
Mengsong is a late-rising star in the most recent puerh market boom. The raw tea price in this region back in 2008 was still relatively low. Besides, the tea trees in the region didn’t suffer from over-exploitation as some other puerh producing regions. Therefore this tea is available at a very good price, and in our opinion, the quality exceeds its price level. More importantly, with very nice and clean dry storage in Guangzhou, the tea seems to have completed its first aging stage and is quite enjoyable now.

This tea was in completely dry storage in Guangzhou between 2008 and 2013.

ok…I’m embarrassed to admit that while I spent all of yesterday afternoon drinking this tea, I didn’t write anything down and seem to have amnesia about it.
I do remember that it was enjoyable, a little bitter at the beginning but not in a bad way, and gradually sweeter, and it had a nice tanginess. Also a little shroomy brothiness at some point.
I know…that’s pretty generic…sorry…

It’s happened to me plenty of times.

I think some of you sheng heads might really enjoy this tea from Life in Teacup. It is a nicely aged 2008, and brews up a dark orange thick soup. It’s got a little smoke, some fruit, and slight mushroom tones. A little astringency rounds out the flavor nicely. Definitely worth a sample, it’s $70 a cake at present, which seems like a very fair price given the quality.
