Wild Arbor Organic Sheng Pu-erh Tea, Mengku - Spring 2012
Made entirely from leaves of tea trees growing wild in the forests this sheng (raw) puerh tea from Mengku packs in a lot of complexity of flavors and qi. We had a few of these cakes that we used at our tea classes to which the participants always responded positively. We are glad to make it now available for everybody.
With abundant tips the cake yields a wonderful clean brew with soft notes that are earthy, herbaceous and sweet with a brisk finish. In gong fu style preparation the tea yields complex flavors even beyond the tenth steep.
Use 6 gm for 150 ml gaiwan. Water Temperature: 185-90F. Flash steeps
