Meng Song Sheng (Raw) Pu-erh Cake

RAW PU-ERH CAKE


Harvested from 70-year-old trees near San Mai village in Mengsong, this cake exemplifies the classic Menghai character. Assertive with lingering bitter notes and astringency through each cup, it has a lasting sweetness with exciting dynamics till the finish. Complex notes of kettle corn, prickly pear and horse blanket make this offering the kind of tea worth savoring.

Harvested spring 2021.

Preparation

Bring spring or filtered water to approximately 212°F. Dislodge a 7g piece of pu-erh (approximately the size of a silver dollar). Steep in traditional gaiwan method—making multiple infusions, starting at 10-15 seconds and increase 5-10 seconds with each steeping. Further reading.

Storage: Unlike most tea, pu-erh improves with age and may be enjoyed for years. For best results, we recommend storing in a cool, dry place that is temperature controlled. Do not place near other aromatic ingredients such as coffee.
