From Path of Cha

This tea is from Bulang Mountain and was made in the spring of 2009 by applying ‘one bud with two leaves’ plucking standard to Menghai large-leaf tea bushes.

There are 11 distinctive grades of Pu-erh. The highest grade is called ‘palace grade’ which means that it consists of the most tender leaves, as well as golden buds that produce a delicate, soft taste. Usually, when making a pu-erh teacake, the ‘palace grade’ material gets blended with materials of lower grades to make the tea darker and stronger.

The Menghai Golden Buds Ripe Pu-erh Teacake of 2009 is made entirely from ‘palace grade’ material, therefore it can be a bit too light for those who are accustomed to stronger teas. However, it’s a great choice for those who enjoy a more delicate taste.
