"Yue Chen Yue Xiang" means "The older, the more aromatic" and it's the perfect term to describe the essence of Pu-erh tea culture! This cake has been aged for 7 years and is quite mature and smooth to drink. This aged tea has become very light and lost most of it's rough 'earthiness'. Very smooth and drinkable with a pleasant hui gan.
Wei Zui Yan means "Strongest Taste". Menghai tea factory first produced this blend in both raw and ripe form in 2006. This 2007 Ripe cake has been aged for 7 years and developed a balanced mature taste with smooth liquor, little astringency or bitterness, little to no "dui wei", and a pronounced sugar-cane taste.
This cake is the second release of the "Silver Dayi" blend. The first and last time Menghai released the "Silver Dayi" cake was in 2003. Since that time it has appreciated in value faster than any other Menghai Factory tea cake.
