Today I'm enjoying a session with the 1980's Menghai Green Brick from The Mandarin's Tea Room. A nicely aged puerh that's said to be a mixture of cooked and raw, although it tastes mostly like an aged sheng to me (which would make sense since that's what its primarily composed of). Deep tobacco notes in the flavor and aroma with a pleasing hui tian arising here and there. A beautiful mellowing cha qi, too, providing the perfect complement to the quietly falling mist outside.
