2015 Hai Lang Hao "Mi Jing Village" Mang Zhi Old Arbor Pu-erh Tea
Brand: Hai Lang Hao
In Hai Lang's own words:
This year's Mi Jing Village (Mang Zhi Mountain area of Yi Wu) has a strong resemblance to our Cha Wang 2 tea cake released in 2011. We have been asked about the Cha Wang 2's successor by customers for several years. It took me 4 years of tirelessly searching to find a tea that I felt was good enough in the same important ways to take it's (Cha Wang 2) place. In the end I decided not to call it Cha Wang 3 simply because I had been just too attached to Cha Wang and Cha Wang 2 to simply name a successor. I also wanted to bring attention to Mi Jing Village old tea trees.
The tea itself is strong and sweet, but counters with a bitter undercurrent that brings balance. The thickness of the tea is excellent and will improve with age. Cha Qi is even and noticeable. Aroma is pleasant and "high".
This is a tea that will age with incredible grace and complexity. There is a limited quantity (just 30 kilograms) so stock up now because this tea will sell out and my own reserve cakes won't be for sale!
400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo tong)
Stone Pressed with 40 kilogram molds in the traditional manner. Compression is perfect!
