2004 "Chen Xiang Zhuan" Menghai Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick
This is a Menghai area ripe pu-erh tea produced by a small tea factory in 2004. It was aged in Kunming from 2005 until now. It comes wrapped in a white wrapper and there is no nei fei or other other distinguishing marks.
It's a mix of various leaf grades, not particularly coarse overall, with a decent amount of golden tips. The brewed tea is incredibly rich with a nice aged taste and aroma. It has a pungent long lasting mouthfeel, coating the mouth with a bean-like sweetness with lots of tea oils. The dry aging has given this tea a very crisp and clear taste with no mustiness or mold. The tea soup is ultra clear with a burgundy-brown hue.
Very enjoyable aged ripe pu-erh tea that will engage even the most sophisticated "shou aficionados"!
