This is the jewel of our recent trip to Guangzhou to hunt around for some nice puerh with a few years of age. We've always loved Mengku Da Xue Shan's wild tea - the trees are some of the biggest and oldest wild trees in Yunnan and the forest is pristine. These days the government has stepped in to protect the forest, making productions like this a treasure of the past.
These bricks were produced by a Guangzhou tea producer in 2010 and have been stored there in a very clean and dry environment. The tea is very pure and clean tasting. It has lost the greenness of youth and begun to develop ripe fruit flavours and aroma.
In the mouth, it has good strength & body with nicely balanced bitterness. There is a pronounced cooling sensation in the throat and a burst of saliva after drinking it. The aftertaste is long, steady and very pleasant.
This is one of the best wild teas we've come across from this period & we can highly recommend it. It's available as 1kg bricks or 25g samples.
