Menghai Te Ji Grade Loose Leaf Ripe Pu-erh Tea

$5.00 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

This is Te Ji grade leaf which is slightly larger than Gong ting grade (the smallest leaf grade).  The tea is the result of a wet pile batch done in Menghai with Menghai area tea leves.  It's a tippy grade Te Ji and the taste is creamy, smooth, but with a thick heavy bite that sticks around in the mouth.  This is the classic Menghai taste here.  Medium level of fermentation preserved the original taste.  The tell-tale taste and feel of sheng pu-erh can still be found here, but at the same time there is something smooth and comforting in this tea.

 

2014 batch (2014 Spring tea leaves, 2014 summer wet piling)
