Today, let’s just say, what is the taste of Menghai taste? The following is for reference only:
Before saying Menghai taste, let’s talk about Menghai.
Menghai (county) is located in the west of Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province, east to Jinghong City, northeast to Simao City, northwest to Pixian County, and west to south to Myanmar. It is the center of the world’s tea tree origin and the famous Pu-erh tea production area.

It has the world’s oldest tea-cultivating ethnic group, tea tree and tea garden. Kind of tea cottage, so Menghai has the reputation of “China Pu-erh Tea First County”.
Menghai Sea, high altitude, large temperature difference between day and night, unique climate of tropical rainforest, based on these unique natural conditions, Menghai has unparalleled unique tea mountainous areas in other places, famous Nannuo Mountain, Bulang Mountain, Hekai mountain, Bada Mountain, Mangga and other tea hills, the well-known villages such as “Old Banzhang” and “Old Mane” are located in the Menghai Tea District.
However, the teas of each tea mountain in the Menghai tea area have their own characteristics, such as Bulang Camellia, which is strong and mellow, with a bitter taste, heavy bitterness, and quick and irritating; Hekai tea is golden and transparent, slightly bitter and sturdy. Returning to sweetness is faster, the soup is full, and the foaming resistance is high; the entrance of Nannuo Mountain Tea is slightly bitter, and it is good to return to sweetness and watering, and the soup is bright.

The famous mountains receives sunshine, and the teas of each tea mountain have their own characteristics. They are self-contained and highly representative. The Menghai tea has become an important symbol of Menghai County. In 2014, Menghai County obtained the “Menghai Tea” geographical indication certification mark, which is also the first geographical indication certification mark obtained by it. It is of great significance to this “China Pu-erh Tea First County”, which means Menghai Tea It has become one of the Yunnan tea brands and will play a role in contributing to the development of Yunnan pu-erh.
“There is no sea, not Pu-erh”. The reason why Menghai tea is famous in the tea industry is more its unique Pu-erh tea ancient tree resources, and Menghai Pu-erh tea has a unique “sea-flavor”. As for what is “sea scent”, the industry has different opinions.
Some people say that ” Menghai taste ” is a combination of the three elements of raw materials, place of origin, and storage environment. The sea of oysters, the fermentation of Menghai Sea, and the storage of Menghai Sea are all indispensable. Some people say that Menghai taste is understood from a broad perspective as Pu-erh in the Menghai area. The taste of tea is narrowly defined as the unique Pu-erh tea taste of Menghai Tea Factory. It is also said that Menghai Flavor is a high-quality Pu-erh tea with the same “taste” produced by many tea production enterprises in Menghai area; From the point of view, “Menghai tea Menghai taste” does not refer to the specific aroma and taste, but the right to speak under the protection of the Menghai Geographical Indication Mark.
However, no matter which kind of statement and understanding, it means that “Menghai taste” is a symbol of the high quality of Menghai tea, and it is one of the contexts of Pu-erh tea guests in certain contexts such as Menghai Sea, cooked tea, standard, raw materials and fermentation. The familiar “taste” memory of Pu-erh tea is the unique “Menghai taste” that can be memorable after drinking a cup of tea. This may be the essence of the “Menghai taste” that we pursue.
