    An interesting piece of 250g brick from good old comrades. The purple tea leafs were pressed and stored in Menghai for few years , then in Kunming , so it has a slight touch of wet storage but rather pleasant. ( not like HK or GZ storage ). Well balanced tea liquor is soft and offers pleasant fruity sweet mouthfeel with touch of "Mei Zi" - the Chinese plum.
