High grade and quality tea leaf from Menghai tea region. Fat tea leaf with clear tea hairs. Medium fermented. Fully hand made ball tea.
Red tea soup with brightness and clearness. Thick and rich. Smooth. Sweet fragrance.
Guangzhou dry and clean storage.
A very nice dark warming cup. It has lots of sweet notes as you drink it. A small amount of bittersweet chocolate when it first hits the palate. Of all the shou I have drank this is really close to the subtleties of Mandala’s Phatty cake. And since I mentioned it that is a testament to the quality and attention that Mandala puts into their product. This is a really great tea to have as you wind the day down. Good flavor without being overpowering. Nice light fermented shou.
