So this loose batch was sold to us as Menghai Qiaomu ‘big tree’ material. This I cannot account for with certainty as I have no way of verifying. I can only explain what I taste and feel.
The taste is a clean aged ripe character with a touch of earth which is pretty normal for a tea of this age, the aftertaste carries. The structure is nice and smooth. You may detect a creamy nature to this tea which would be indicative of its Menghai routes. If you are sensitive to chi you will notice it here. This leads me to believe there would be at least some Da Shu (older tree) material within.
