Tasting Notes - Mild and neutral, Meng Zhr teas are easy on the body and because it has had time to develop and ‘age’ for over a year, and has lost some of its already minimal astringency. A little more time steeping won’t hurt as the tea can handle it. It is an ideal tea for a pick me up and mild jolt of hydrating and doesn’t contain quite the stimulant kick. One little tip: by extending the time of the ‘first wash’ infusion one can remove slightly more of the stimulant (theine/caffeine) in the tea.
