This ripe cake is pressed a from a wet pile batch done entirely from Meng Song area (Menghai County) tea leaves harvested in 2019 and wet piled in late 2019!
Meng Song ripe tea has a very potent cha qi, with a thick tea soup, dark chocolate like bitterness and fruity sweetness. Pure Meng Song ripe tea is relatively rare. It has a unique bitter-sweet character with a fast hui gan and a touch of licorice sweet after-taste.
For those of you who purchase this tea during the year of 2020 expect that there will be some wet pile taste throughout 2020, but will fade gradually as the tea ages. Remember pu-erh increases in palatability and complexity with age! In Chinese we refer to this as 越陈越香.
