Beng Long 蚌龙 2022
A strong, relatively bitter Tea from Menghai.
Beng Long is a village in Menghai, Xishuangbanna. This tea is made from 50 - 70 year old trees, that grow on an elevation of 1800m in a good natural environment. The tea has been stored as Mao Cha for a year in Jinghong before being pressed into small 100g cakes.
We tried this tea multiple times as Mao Cha (unpressed Puerh) and felt it being great as a tea for traveling or a daily drinker.
Probably one of our more upfront bitter teas giving a good energy.

For all our Puerh teas we recommend Gong Fu style brewing using 5-8g of tea on 100ml water. Rinse the tea briefly and then do repeating steeps (up to 6-12) of 10-20 seconds.
