From Menghai Tea Factory (yunnan sourcing)

A classic single edition of Da Yi’s classic “Hong Zhuang” ripe pu-erh tea cake. High grade tippy ripe pu-erh from Menghai has been blended to perfection and pressed into this lovely cake. The tea was then aged for 10 years in a Kunming storage condition.

Thick strong taste with hints of camphor, sugarcane and mushroom… nice clear burgundy tea soup and penetrating aroma. Pleasant characteristic Da Yi thick and buttery taste!

Some staining of the wrappers from the tea sweating onto it during more humid times.

400 grams per cake

This is a very nice ripe puerh that has partially cleared as far as the fermentation flavor goes. The fermentation taste was not strong. This is well on the way to becoming fermentation free as far as the taste goes. I wasn’t really paying attention to the specifics of this tea as I was preparing to photograph it as I was drinking it. I was thinking about the way everything looked rather than the taste. I drinnking the last of it now, steep thirteen and would say it developed a bit of a fruity note. Don’t know about chocolate notes as far as this one goes. I just know I really liked this tea. It is not very different from the 2008 version which I have on sale in the Stash sale. This is one good ripe.

I steeped this teta thirteen times in a 175ml teapot with 12.5g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min, and 3 minutes.
