I quickly realized that my musings on the 2001 Menghai Yiwu Zhengshan below probably has little meaning to those of you who couldn't get your hands on this tea in time before it "sold out" or simply because you didn't know it existed. I also realize that the path of tea learning which I stand on is paved with the generosity of others.
"The road to hell..." :)
There are many teas that would have stayed out of my reach, either because of their prices or by my lack of access, if it had not been through the kindness of my friends.
In that same spirit, I would like to share this 2001 Menghai Yiwu Zhengshan with the first 10 individuals who express their interest to me by e-mail (see below). There is no obligation whatsoever on your part to compensate me or to write any tasting notes, though I would love to hear what you think of the tea in private or on this blog. Any contribution to help defray the cost of shipping is strictly voluntary but not necessary.
Apologies beforehand, I can only accommodate 10 interested individuals with about 15 grams each. I don't own a mini scale, so please don't mind the inconsistencies when the tea arrives. You might just get more. Kindly e-mail me your name and mailing address to: email@example.com.
