We have never been so confused by the wrapper of a cake in relation to its material. The label boasts that the puer cake is:
Xishuangbanna (and from Menghai)
Made for Export
Of that long list of claims, we can verify that exactly zero of those things are 100% true. However, the tea is good and that is all that we care about. The tea is sweet, soft, smooth, and an excellent daily drinker - it resembles Yiwu character more closely than typical Menghai character. For around $50, this over ten year old tea with clean storage is a great value.
Naka raw puer tea pressed April first of 2005. Stored in excellent humid, but not too humid conditions. The first couple of steeps retain some astringency. Depth of feeling in the throat and slick texture in the mouth. Our opinion is that this tea generates an uncommon body response of deep calm.
