1980's Chen Xiang Old Flavor Chen Joe Menghai Loose Leaf Pu-erh
This is a great tasting aged Pu-erh loose leaf from Menghai area of Yunnan. The leaves are large and carry an awesome old flavor. Take a smell of these wet leaves to discover a real aged aroma.
This is a great Menghai tea that is only slightly shu (20%) to get the aged flavor. The rest of the taste is time and HK dry storage. There is a great aftertaste that makes this tea memorable. A nice large leaf base that infuses quickly to brew a strong cup. A good tea of shu/sheng process that was used a lot in the 1980's to help speed aging but give the tea some room to naturally oxidize with time. That is what has happened with this good tea.
