The other side of tea

2002 Menghai 8582 Style Sheng Cha

This excellent puerh tea cake is 16 years old, a real 2002 favorite. It is very slightly refined in traditional storage in Hong Kong, then naturally aged in Taiwan. The cakes are wrapped in simple white paper. They come from a small producer in the Menghai area in Yunnan province. The value of this tea lies in its great taste and the remarkable quality of its maturation. It is inspired by Menghai Tea Factory’s recipe 8582. Mature leaves and tannins give the tea its typical character and the aromatic profile. The leaves are transformed in the traditional way and have a remarkable tannic structure, which combines power and richness. The light ripening, which gives this tea its definitive character and outstanding quality, is exceptionally successful. It contains no trace of moisture or storage aromas and preserves the typically charming character of raw puerh, including a beautiful frame, as fresh and pleasant in the mouth as for the nose.
