Angel's Comment:

Shocked by the strong orchid fragrance and the long-lasting honey aroma at the bottom of the cup, highly recommended.

Mang Fei Tea, known as "one of the three treasures of Yongde", has thick liquor, rich and full taste, strong and long-lasting aroma at the brewed cup, and promotes the secretion of saliva. When we tasted it for the first time, we were amazed by it. From the first infusion, the taste is rich and the orchid fragrance can last till the six infusions. It has full Cha Qi and thick taste, but almost without any bitterness. After drinking, only the aroma and sweet aftertaste are left in the mouth. This tea was plucked and produced in 2020, relatively new, so it's very worth collecting and waiting for its later transformation.

Origin

Mang Fei means “mountains between river valleys” in Dai language, which also reveals the important factor of the unique quality of Mang Fei Tea. Mong Fei Village, backed by a high mountain, has rich underground water, acid and gravel soil, facing east, with plenty of sunshine. The Mengban River flows through the foot of the mountain, and the rising mist blocks part of ultraviolet rays. 1500 to 1600 meters above sea level, large temperature differences between day and night, let the leaves store more nutrients and have a rich taste. Good tea comes out of high mountains and clouds. Grown at this unique atmosphere and after hundreds of years of cultivation, Mang Fei Tea owns its unique charm. At present, the whole village has about 4950 mu tea gardens, and the average age of the tea trees has reached more than 100 years.

History

Pu-erh tea is one of the oldest types of tea in China, with a history stretching back over 1,700 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty, when the tea was called Jing Cha. Pu-erh is named after the town of Pu’er in Yunnan province, which was the original trading center of this tea. In its early history, this tea was actually used as bartering currency in southwest China, where the famed Cha Ma Gu Dao, “Tea Horse Road”, was built for the sole purpose of transporting it through the Himalayas to other countries and areas in Tibet.
