2002 Mengma Sheng
This wonderful addition to our menu is a well-aged cake tea from the unusual area of Menglian County in south-western Yunnan (孟连县勐马), nearly in Burma. Stored in warm conditions since 2002 (Simao and Kunming), this tea has developed a bold and delicious character. The aroma of fallen leaves as they lie in November is immediate from the dark cherry red liquor. The heavy taste of age and leather drapes the tongue with a subtle sweetness that follows at its end. Its brightness rests long after each sip, soaking into the spirit.
This is a limited-edition tea, so get it while you can!
