From Menghai Tea Factory (Finepuer)

This loose tea is from Menghai tea factory. Made of high quality spring buds (early spring shoots) raw tea leaves.
This is a tea made in 1993 and had been sold to northern China somewhere near Harbin where the weather are cold and the humid are low all year round (just like a fridge). This tea arrived in Malaysia store in early June 2010. This sample tea has been open and store in a canister since early July 2010. The potential of this tea is very high.

Got this out to celebrate with tonight. Been saving this.
I got the pack out the box even has a picture of the tea inside. Nice packaging points given.
The dry leaf has a bit of the old book aroma to it. The leaf is an almost pitch color.
I tossed it in the Gaiwan and did a quick rinse. The wash looked very dark so I will steep this quick 2 to 3 seconds. The color is a light gold and I had expected a darker brew from a tea of this age. I would think dry stored. The aroma is a bit musky with a bit of campfire in there as well. This may have been due to the makers still doing hand processing instead of machine. The taste is smoky a good sharp citrus flavor and a good hit of bitter, I have had 6 steeps and this one is still doing well holding up. The Cha Qui of this one is slowly creeping in and I am getting some of the cooling and camphor notes.
A great tea to celebrate with. The car re-build went well and the Dyno results are in.
410 horsepower at the wheel and 448 ft lbs. of torque. For the goal of 500 hp. on pump gas has been met! Come on Summer!

Kirkoneill1988 there are plenty of Sheng that offer camphor, usually more a sign of age but there are young exceptions :D
