1999 large leaf menghai raw brick, compressed into bricks, is made with tea leaves collected from the Menghai area.


With a top note of light camphor tree and base notes of ginseng and plum, it is always a wonderful experience when drinking the tea. 1999 large leaf menghai raw brick also provides a clean and round taste due to the cautious storage in both Hong Kong and Taiwan. 




Brew instructions


We highly suggest you use a Yixing clay (purple clay) teapot for best presenting the flavors of puer tea. 


When brewing the tea, the tea to water ratio could be 1:25. (ex.150cc teapot with 6g of tea). The flavors are more exceptional once you break the cake (brick) apart and decant it for around 2 weeks.


When brewing 1999 large leaf menghai raw brick, we recommend you brew it with boiled water and pre-brew it once. Pre-brewing not only wash up the dust accumulated from decades of storing but also wake the tea up to stimulate more flavors. Pre-brewing should not take more than 15 seconds since the procedure is to open up the tea leaves. After the pre-brew, the first infusion should take around 40 seconds; followed by 30 seconds of the second infusion, and 35 seconds of the third infusion. Gradually add 10-20 seconds for each infusion you make afterward depending on your preference on the taste. 


The waterflow you apply when brewing tea can also affect the taste. Gentle waterflows create more elegant flavors, stronger aromas, and a more concluded body as opposed to sudden waterflows create more mellow taste and subtle aromas. Feel free to experiment on your own and please share your experiences with us.
