From Menghai Tea Factory (Yunnan Sourcing)

This is the one of the highest grade premium ripe tea recipe released by Menghai tea factory! The 0532 recipe ripe cake is composed of an average of Grade 3 ripened tea leaves. The cake is full of small leaves and fermented buds, but balanced with slightly larger leaves to create a rounded flavor. Menghai tea factory is the foremost tea factory in Yunnan with more than 50 years of history. Their quality of their ripe pu-erhs have made them the undisputed King of Ripe Pu-erh! This collectable mini tea cake is composed of grade 3 and higher leaves, all smaller leaf fermented material with plenty of flavor to give up when brewed! When brewing keep infusion times very short in the beginning! Sure to be a classic due to its amazing textured flavor profile and limited production quantity.

Reminds me alot of the 2006 Menghai 3rd Grade Ripe tea cake!!

This is an excellent ripe that could use a couple more years of aging. There was a lot of fermentation flavor through the first four or five steeps. It was initially bittersweet in nature. The fermentation was not of the unpleasant sort. A sweet note developed after the bitter left. It was good.

I steeped this ten times in a 160ml solid silver teapot with 14.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 minute.
