Core 2018 Spring Mengku Raw Puer Huang Pian



Smooth, sweet and with just the right amount of astringency, this huang pian brick is a big tea with a low price. Made from spring Mengku material, this tea is perfect for evening tea sessions, due to the slightly lower caffeine content compared to regular raw puer.

Huang pian simply refers to the older leaves on a tea tree that are either picked later in the season or removed from earlier pickings due to their less-than-desirable appearance. The leaves end up a yellow-green colour after roasting, and don’t take to rolling the same as their younger counterparts, remaining flatter and stiffer.

Nonetheless, huang pian material still can make for a very flavourful tea, typically with a smoother, sweeter and easy to accept character at a fraction of the price.

    This is a nice Huang Pian, though I’ve had better experiences with the Eden and Alter Ego HPs.. Can definitely use longer steeping times, like most HPs..

    Fairly light and simple tasting tea, it’s sweet and the main taste is raisin with a bit of earthiness at late infusions and occasional floral notes. For the price I think it’s a good value tea that provides a easy going session with no off notes that would upset anybody.
