This is Mengku's only release of their "Pre-Ming Spring Tips" raw cake. Early Spring material from Lincang and Yongde picked in March 2008 was blended to produce a powerful tea with potent cha qi that is certain to age with complexity. This tea has been aged for 9 years in Kunming.
A new product for 2006, this quickly became Mengku's most popular release of 2006 after winning the Expo Tea Award in Kunming. Raw material is from "bingdao" (literally Ice Island) an area in the county of Mengku well-known for its pungent strong teas.
