  • Mengku Rongshi Big Leaf 2011 Spring
    $139.00
    500g
    Mengku Rongshi Big Leaf 2011 Spring
    This pu'er cake was produced in the Spring of 2011 by the Rongshi tea factory from tea leaves grown in Mengku, a township of Lincang prefecture, Yunnan province. It's been aged in Shanghai since release, and is an enjoyable daily drinker with lots of body and hearty structure in their tea. It's very balanced, with little bitterness or astringency. The tea brews a thick honey colored liquor with some charcoal flecks. The aroma is a mix of earth & granary, with some dry leather, a touch of sweetness, finishing with light forest notes. The tea flavor centers around a base of aged wood, hearty grains, steamed sweetcorn and a whiff of smoke. Honey comes thru on later steeps with noticeable huigan - a lingering sweetness on the tongue & throat. At a hefty 500g per cake, this is a good value, dry aged pu'er for everyday drinking. Please enjoy!

    Mengku Great Snow Mountain 2011 Spring
    This pu'er cake was produced in the Spring of 2011 by the Rongshi tea factory in Mengku, from tea leaves grown in DaXueShan 大雪山, which translates as "Great Snow Mountain." Aged in Shanghai since release, the aroma is of smokey aged wood, musty old books, dried mushrooms & Chinese herbal medicines, finishing with forest floor, and sweet brown sugar. The tea brews a viscous, dark amber, which can be very thick and pulpy if oversteeped. The tea flavour is of aged camphor, mushroom soup, smoke, potsticker char with a syrupy nectar note that binds it throughout. There is very little bitterness or astringency, it's so easy & fun to drink. The aftertaste is slightly silty, there is some bitterness and smoke, but it turns sweet quickly. A sweet toffee note lingers in the empty cup, and in later steeps, sweet huigan appears at the back of your throat. It has some giddy chaqi to it too. Overall, very good price to performance and makes for an attractive gift with a large huangpian pressed into the top of each 500g cake.

    Pa Sha 2011 Spring
    Pasha is the largest ancient tea tree grove in Menghai, growing at high elevation, 1,800m above sea level. This exceptionally tasty cake was produced by our friend Mr. Yu under his private label Che Ma Xuan and is our favorite of his 2011 teas. The aroma from the gaiwan is strong and full, with delicious smoky, roasted almond & barnyard notes, over a base of honey and brown sugar. The tea is full bodied, thick and silky smooth. It tastes nutty, with chestnuts and sunflower seeds, with some bitterness and aged notes giving the tea body. A sweet aftertaste coats the tongue. A very rewarding tea that exemplifies Menghai gushu puer.

    This Wangong cake produced by Xin Sheng Li Hao was made from trees deep in the forest, 3 hours walk from the nearest village of DingJiaZhai. The trees are very tall and climbing up to pick the fresh leaves is a dangerous job. This tea is exceptional, slightly smokey with an aroma of brown sugar, sweet flavor, creamy mouthfeel, and some of the largest, longest leaves we’ve seen.
