2007 Dayi Star of Menghai Ripe [Episode 321]

This episode, Denny and I drink a special production ripe from last decade, the Star of Menghai. This is a production that is not made every year and is composed of a lot of tippy, gong ting leaves. Thank you to shah for sending this tea in.

    The main reason I sent this tea was so that you had a fairly standard ripe, so as to give more of a feel specifically for the impact of my storage, vs the An Xiang ripe.

      I’d say that the thing I like about your storage for these ripes is it really seems to keep a lot of the nuance and complexities intact. With some of the Anxiangs that our mutual friend got, the storage has not done them any favors.

        Traditionally, dry stored ripes weren’t seen as to be very interesting, and MarshalN, for example, finds wet stored aged shu to be more interesting…
