Episode 229: Mengku Najiao Pu’erh

Today, I’m sampling a pretty interesting tea from M&K’s Tea Company — Mengku Naijao Pu’erh. According to them, this tea is a great introduction to pu’erh. Let’s give it a try!

Because this is grown in the same region as Yunnan Gold, it shares some of the same taste characteristics. The difference here is that the peppery taste is more prominent. The tea is a bit bitter even for the short steep time, but not overwhelmingly so. Your mileage may vary.
