2017 Autumn Mengsong Old Arbor Sheng Puerh

Mengsong is one of the highest elevation tea growing regions in Menghai County (Xishuangbanna).  The teas are slower growing (because of the elevation) and have a good amount of strength. 

This maocha ('maocha' means unfinished tea or, in this case, uncompressed pu-erh) is from a single grove of older trees.  The tea steeps both strong and sweet with a decent amount of young sheng bitterness.
