This was a nice ripe puer. I got it A.because I wanted to try something from Menghai and B. because it was quite inexpensive for a 100g cake. The taste is strong and pleasant, with fallen leaves and dry wood. No fishiness, not danky. Nothing too complex or changing over multiple steepings but still consistently pleasant.

It is not a puer for paying-attention-to way of drinking but rather a good tea for absent-minded kind of sipping at work and that how I finished this little cake off in one workweek.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Decayed Wood

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – a very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
