Highlights

This tea is from the prominent Menghai Zhong Jie Hao Tea Company.  It was sourced by Victoria on her 2014 tea trip to Menghai, one of the most renowned and sought-after puerh tea producing regions of Yunnan. After 7 years of aging, this tea has developed its flavor well with fruitiness, honey sweetness and buttery smoothness. It produces a consistent saliva-rich mouthfeel and sweet aftertaste, called Hui Gan. The pronounced buttery sweet notes persist from the first steep all the way to the last.  We predict it will further develop and deepen these wonderful attributes as time goes by.  

Traditionally, puerh cakes are stacked together and wrapped in a bamboo skin case called a tong. One tong is composed of 7 individual cakes. To purchase a tong, please contact us directly.
