Club selection of November 2015 - One of the highest tea growing regions in all of southern Yunnan, Mengsong boasts teas that are lesser known while carrying power in every sip. Higher altitudes (Mengsong boasts 2400 metre heights) dictate longer development and growth times for bushes. Cooler temperatures at these altitudes also promote slower growth and many say that this is a benefit for the flavor width and profile. Without being astringent, our Mengsong is a tea with bite and strength. Discover this Mengsong tea even further with Jeff.
Tasting Notes - One of our more powerful offerings Mengsong has serious stimulant power and is a great ageing tea because of its innate strengths. True vegetal width in the mouth makes this tea, a tea to temper to find a suitable strength. Many of the Hani harvesters advocated less leaves in an infusion because of the power.
