Weight: 100 grams
Type: Raw Pu-erh (unfermented)
Grade: 1-3
Production area: Mengsong, Xishuanbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province

Taste characteristics:
Mengsong, as well as other tea producing regions in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan experienced a drought this year, drastically reducing output for the spring harvest.The good news is that teas produce during a drought are more intense in flavor. Leaves picked from centuries old tea trees in high mountains of Mengsong, this tea is rich, full-bodied, complex, and offers a quick and strong hui gan (minty mouth sensation).

Use 4-5 grams of leaves per 6 ounces of water. Rinse the leaves once with 190 F degree water and discard the water. Follow the suggested steeping times below.

A very good tea 09/12/2019
By Seth Berg
I'm saving my five star rating for the best tea I will ever taste, but this is pretty close. It has a strong enough taste; it is smooth but not too smooth. I get a bit of green grass flavor, and a medium level of tingly mouth feel. Definitely a good tea for a fair price.
Our responseSeth, thank you for the high praise of this tea. A 4-star rating is a big deal when comes from you. Thank you!

Our responseThe garden only produced 30 kilos this spring due to the drought. I bought them all.
