About 2004 Menghai:

Menghai is a famous area for Puer production in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. This Menghai tea brick is a traditional, green (Sheng) Puer from 2004. Throughout the aging process, the compressed green tea leaves gradually transform so that the tea develops a richer, darker, more complex flavor profile

For storing Puer tea, a clean, well-ventilated, semi-humid environment is best. A porous clay container or wooden box can be used if storing your Puer over a long period of time.

Ingredients: Compressed Puer Tea.

Flavor Profile:

Vegetal, smoky flavor with an aroma of earth and pine.

Brewing Instructions:

Every tea is different and can be brewed in different ways. The chart below is not a hard-and-fast guide for brewing this tea, but rather a place to get started. Steeping time may vary based on your personal taste or on how many infusions have already been done. Experiment with the brewing of your tea to discover its unique character.

Brewing the tea brick is fairly simple. Break off a small piece (equal to the size of a teaspoon), and brew as you would with loose leaf tea.
