Thank you for your reply. I ment Mengku factory, I'm aware of the fact that DaYi is the most reputable pu-erh producer in China, but they are mostly famous for their shu pu-ers and not so strong at shengs.
Many young shengs have astringent and bitter taste and it can not always be skipped by brewing. In the question above I ment a kind of sheng that is ready for immediate consumption, though it might be a bit bitter.
