2015 Purple Dayi
rich smoky plum fragrance and flavor
The purple Dayi has a rich smoky plum fragrance and flavor. The mouth activity and sweetness are both fairly good as well.
The bold smoky taste and mouth activity stand out for this tea.
This tea is a re-make of its first edition in ’96. 1996 was also the first year the Menghai tea factory changed from the Zhong cha ba Zhong label to the current Dayi mark.
The Dayi site says ”it has a perfect secret recipe to create a new level of Pu'er tea”. The blend is supposed to have a portion of high elevation over 2000m big tree material in the blend. Rumored to have some Bulang material, the taste is mostly Menghai.
