Plum Beauty 2018 Mengsong Raw Puer



One of our favourite new additions of 2017, our Plum Beauty Mengsong makes a return for 2018. This year’s material is comprised of ~40 years or fangyang (放养/“left to grow”) tree material that sees no human intervention outside of picking.

The result of this style of farming is a denser flavour than normally encountered from younger tree material. This tea has a pleasant balance of floral fragrance, kuwei (enjoyable bitterness) and sweetness in the throat and in terms of huigan.

While there are some light plum notes in this tea’s early stage, our experience with this same tea of different ages indicates that a stronger stone fruit/plum flavour can be expected to develop as it ages over the years.

We recommend this tea for those seeking balance in a tea, with a deep fragrance, but also a grounded flavour.

    Tasty, thick, and has those fruity Mengsong notes. Doesn’t last long (which is normal for the price), but the few good brews it does give are worth the asking price.. which is why the cakes are sold out. Good daily drinker!

    Nice light fruit-forward puer, but there isn’t much that stands out about this tea. The flavor was pretty weak by about the 6th quick infusion, even pushing up to about a minute. Decent budget-friendly option, but not exciting.

    Much more interesting than the 2017 version! All those gorgeous leaves and hairy buds gave me a bright yellow cider colored liquor. Gentle smell of meadow flowers in summer. Clean clothes smell – Medium texture – pleasant tingling on the end of the tongue – great sweetness – light mouthcoating. I loved the summer freshness that was coming out.
