2014 Da Meng Long Gushu
Continuing in our "Lost and Found in Kunming" series, this cake was pressed by a friend of ours from old trees in the Mengsong region. It has been stored in Kunming since then.
The tea is ageing well - it has lost the fresh green edge of youth and starting to brown slightly. The tea is thick and rich. The later infusions have a touch of astringency, but the aftertaste is pleasant, very long lasting and inducing saliva.
We haven't lab tested the tea, but it tastes very clean and agrochemical free.
