2018 Mengku "Ben Wei Da Cheng" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
Ben Wei Da Cheng means something like "Creating the Original Taste". The question is a good one. There are so many tea growing areas in Yunnan producing quality teas, but each is different. When we drink pu-erh tea we know this is pu-erh. The owner of Mengku tea factory Mr, Rong (pictured on the wrapper) wanted to create an iconic raw pu-erh tea cake that was balanced, full-bodied and pure. His creation is this unique Certified Organic blend.
Yunnan Shuang Jiang Mengku 云南双江勐库 : Shuangjiang Mengku is a company that was established in 1999 in the city of Shuangjiang, which means Double River, in Mengku county of Lincang 临沧 prefecture. The predecessor was a state-owned Shuangjiang Factory that was established in 1974. Their teas have become renowned for both their distinct crisp tastes and reasonable prices. The name of their factory is Rongshi (戎氏) and so they sometimes also produce teas under the Mengku Rongshi label. Presently, they have become one of the top tea producers in the country. Mengku's classic recipes include "Mu Shu Cha", "Wild Arbor King", and "Spirit of Tea" and are typically produced each and every year!
