Sitting very pleasantly in 2021 with quite an impressive mouth feel and a light sweetness building. Flavour is starting to get interesting, aged notes should be more front and centre in a few years. This Ripe blend from the famous Menghai Tea Factory was first released in 2009 and has been well received. As with most of Dayi’s Ripe offerings this is a blend of both 2009 Menghai area & more aged Menghai material creating a deeper more pleasant tea from the get go. Average grade 5 leaves. Careful climatised Guangdong wear house storage has rounded out this Ripe nicely. If you’ve tried many of Dayi’s Ripes you will find this offering to be a kind of (middle ground), not too tippy, not to powerful, a good all rounder and very popular!
