2016 MENGHAI TAE "GOLDEN FRUIT" Ripe Puerh - 2 oz
The wrapper is so beautiful, I had to check out this tea. Menghai Tae is one of the inventors of the wo dui (wet pile fermentation) process for ripe puerh and they know their business! Even though it is young, the soup has a wonderful smooth and thick mouthfeel, sweet and silky, with notes of chocolate, dried fruit (prune and persimmon) and a hint of ripe peach on the finish. It is ready to enjoy now but has a nice structure that will develop over time.
