Puerh - Menghai Yunhai 2007
Hand-rolled Puerh tea balls for individual brewing use.
Each Puerh tea ball weighs 5 grams and is considered vintage 2007.
This is a 10 year Puerh and is fermented, cooked and ripe.
The tea leaves are of premium quality and rolled tightly but quite easy to break apart with a Puerh tea pick without shattering into dust.
Smell: Earthy, damp earth after a mild rain
Taste: Smooth, roasted , aged and robust
Liquor: Rich dark red
Stay: Even, and robust, consistently coats the tongue
Leaf: cut, aged leaves
Conclusion: Astringency is non-existent.
Clean earth flavor.
Excellent as a breakfast tea or as a tea that cleanses the palate after a rich meal.
Pairs well with an English style breakfast of sausages, eggs, toast, baked beans, etc.
This Puerh exceeded all expectations.
It could not be over-brewed and after 6 steepings still had life in it.
This would make an excellent ice tea after the 6th steep.
Put the tea dregs into a pot, add water and bring it to a simmer for 15 mins.
Then proceed to making your ice-tea.
