Mang Fei - "Green Shoot"
The leaf for this 100-gram green or "sheng" cake was harvested in the spring of 2007, stored for 4 years, and pressed into cakes in 2011. The taste is very floral and comparatively mellow for a Yongde county tea, with a mouth feel that is thick and pungent but not overpowering. The aging process brings forth subtle essences of the leaf while oxidizing, thus removing some of the typical "brutish" qualities Mang Fei mountain teas have been known to present.
Harvested 2007; taste is very floral.
