From Yunnan Sourcing

Mu Ye Chun brand is a sub-brand of the Mengku Rongshi tea factory. Mu Ye Chun teas are produced entirely from Yong De county (Lincang prefecture) material. Fermentation is also done in Yong De town with it’s soft and sweet water. This tea has a rounded taste and full mouth-feel with really decent cha qi for a ripe tea. This “Gong Ting” cake is a blend of Gong Ting, Te Ji, and 1st grade material. The small leaves used give this tea a creamy taste and pungent aroma!

400 grams per cake

What a find! This one is a great daily drinker and a wonderful value. It’s one of those that’s so cheap you can’t even get a sample, so I’m glad it turned out to be a good one. At $15 for a 400g cake I feel fortunate to have found this one. It says gong ting, but it is actually a combination of gong ting, te ji, and 1st grade leaves but it behaves like a gong ting. It comes out strong. After the first steeping, the next couple can almost be flash steeped. 2-5s is sufficient enough to produce a dark rich liquor. The tea is smooth and rich, yet soft and not overpowering. Specific flavor notes did not stand out too much, it was just a nice rich smooth shou pe erh. The description says it has a nice cha qi, but I didn’t notice too much. It was pretty mild if anything. Being a fine grade leaf, the pot steeps out after 6-7 steepings for me. This cake is just about perfect for my morning tea and at $15 a cake for a tea with already over 5 years of age, I’m pretty happy I found this one.

Generally I enjoy S.Mengku’s Mu Ye Chun productions – decent quality at a fair price.

I agree! I’ve mostly had their sheng, this is the first shou from that brand that I’ve tried but they certainly are a favorite of mine!
