1998 Grand Yellow Label Beeng Cha
This is a very tasty cake. It is a special edition of the famous Grand Yellow cakes of the 1950's-60's. The leaves of this tea are very large and intact. I am sure this tea will get better, but it is amazing right now. This is a solid choice to taste a very good Pu-erh. Made with green leaves at the Menghai Factory.
These leaves are quite impressive. They are a great chocolate brown color. The cakes are hand compressed and therefore not so tight. That means you can break them off with your hand, which is a nice feature. It keeps the leaves intact so check them out as you steep them. The tea had a great full taste that leaves a distinct aftertaste of great Pu-erh's. It has a woody flavor. Needless to say this cake is a great addition to your collection. Approximate weight is 350g, but they can vary a little. Makes 75 servings, and each set of leaves is good for 5-10 infusions brewed gongfu style. 1998 production. Dai production, Yi Wu area leavesin the Menghai factory.
