The classic shou cakes that became the paragon of the genre throughout the 1970s and 1980s were medium-fermented by Menghai factory, using raw material from the Menghai area—so much so that you will still here some old timers refer to fine shou as having “that classic Menghai taste.” Old-Town Gathering wasn’t made by Menghai factory, but it is a tribute to that era, using organic Menghai leaves in a medium fermentation piling that was controlled with skill and stopped at the appropriate time to suit this grade of leaves.
Old-Town Gathering was harvested in the spring of 2014 and piled a few months later. It represents an exception to the three reasons that shou puerh has dropped in quality in recent times, as it comes from nice raw material, was intentionally produced as loose-leaf shou puerh and was piled to a very specific degree that suits the nature of the leaves/blend used. Having exceptions to the rule is what Global Tea Hut education is all about, after all!

The thick and sweet buds and partial artificial fermentation/piling of Old-Town Gathering mean that the tea still has a sheng bite, preserving some of the Qi from the trees. As Master Lu often tells us, “Processing the bitterness out of tea is trying to remove its wisdom and nature, like trying to process the suffering out of life. Better to learn to appreciate it and let its wisdom fill you up.”

It brews up a thick and creamy-dreamy liquor that is heavy and rich, filling you with warm and flowing Qi that changes a winter day to summer friendliness. Despite the kick, the two years of aging have smoothed and mellowed this tea out, though it would also respond to ten more years of aging very well, indeed. This is our favorite kind of shou, and in fifteen years may very well be not just amongst our favorite kind, but our favorite!
