Dragon tea shop and menghai offering

Postby Jeremy » Jan 27th, '09, 19:21

Hi guys, Its been a while. I wanted to see if anyone has sampled the various menghai raw cakes from dragon tea shop? I am looking for the very best menghai raw cakes they have. I have had the daughters cake and the five color peacock (from ysl). I know some of you use dragon, thoughts please?

I would wait for the 09 offerings. Perhaps with the bubble burst perhaps factories will have better access to better mao cha. I know I am.

Well, it's not a cake, or cheap, and it's 2005, but it is from dragonhousetea and I rather like it:

I like dealing with Gordon at Dragon Tea. His Menghai cakes are the same as Scott's. I recently ordered
    Dayi Early Spring Tuo 2005, pictured above (based on Tenuki's evaluation)
    Queen of Yiwu Mengyang 2008 (based on Hop & Trioxon's comments)
    Bai Cha Tang 7th Generation 2006 (based on Hop & Shogun89's comments)
Gordon has a ton of other stuff that I have ordered from Scott but could just as likely have ordered from Gordon.

I'll be real curious to hear your opinion on that toucha Sal, our tastes in puerh tend to be quite different.

I don't think so. I suspect that I am just more willing to drink anything put in front of me.

Some of the 2009 cakes will really be in by March?

What I mean is that the tea picking season and manufacturing will be well on its way by March.
