A Pu-erh kind of a day

Enjoying relatively warm weather the past couple of weeks, the thermometer snapped back to the mid 50'sF .

So when I reached the office it was a Shu Pu-erh I reached for.

Produced in 2003, by: Meng Hai Li Ming Factory in; Xishuangbanna. Kong Que Zhi Xi Ang Qi Zi Bing Cha.

357gm cake for; 175 RMB, in Dongguan, Feb 2008.Strong rich tea .. In the past year the cakes have improved over my initial encounter. A true daily tea.

We must be naive, but we've never, ever seen these cakes before, or at least not as we think. This was really interesting. We wonder if this is more of a niche tea or something more commercial in nature. We hope you don't mind but we've added your site to our blogroll.

I worked in Dongguan for about 4 years, and had direct access to many such teas. john
