    While Menghai workshop usually focuses on blended pu’ers, this unique pressing highlights the single-origin flavor of Yiwu. Yiwu is famous for its intense cooling foresty profile and this cake devivers with intense rich aromatics and pine forest cooling aftertaste. The silvery buds and long downy leaves already have nearly a decade of slow aging under cooler drier conditions to bring out the sweet florals and build deep nuance.


  • 'Most pu’er does become more complex over time. Astringency mellows out, darker and richer flavors come through. Textural complexities become more pronounced. Starting with an intriguing young pu’er of high quality with lots of textures and flavors at play will increase your chances of graceful aging.'
