Lately I’ve been experimenting with some factory puerhs, and here we have a fantastic slab of ripe from Menghai.

The smell right after first rinse is sweet rye bread. Think rye bread pudding…yum. This is gonna be good.

…and it is! Great maltiness in the aftertaste that lingers. As it lingers, it gets better and evolves into a nice toastiness. This is a crisp puerh with almost no funky, smokey, or musty flavors.

A slight bitterness appears as the steeps go on, but it’s subtle and pleasant. The bitterness turns into that toasty aftertaste and actually increases it’s intensity into something resembling marmite.

This tea is fantastic, no doubt.
