2010 Haiwan “Peerless” Ripe 500g
Haiwan’s most premium ripe tea cake of 2010. Almost entirely smaller leaf and buds throughout. Fermented from high quality Menghai material, this medium to light fermentation tea cake offers a strong thick taste and notably complex mouth-feel. An incredibly big and chunky tea cake.

I bought this ripe pu’er for a fantastic price – $20 for 500 grams at Yunnan Sourcing. I was hoping this would be a great daily pu’er. Turns out, first infusion are really rich – tobacco, bitter cocoa and nut shelly. Middle infusions lighten to a pine, fruity sweet and sap – getting sweeter and sweeter with each infusion – very delicious. The texture is my favorite part of this pu’er as it’s slick and creamy, so feels amazing to drink!

Around the 9th infusion – MEGA TEA DRUNK. Woweee – this tea packs a punch – that deep breath, heart tightening, manic, I feel fantastic tea drunk feeling.

In the end, not a daily tea – the tea drunk is too strong in this one.

One day soon I will have to brew this tea nine times and see if I can replicate your experience. I never got tea drunk off of this. Did you drink it with or without sugar? Its my opinion that that effects the effect.

No sugar, just gong fu brewing – 2 rinses, 10 seconds to start, adding 10 seconds to each infusion. Next time I’m going to try 5 seconds as it’s pretty rough to start.


I thought this tea pretty good too. I picked up a tong about a year and a half ago when it was still $18 a cake or so.


Very interesting report on your blog about this. I thought Yunnan Sourcing had raised the price on the China site as well as the US, maybe not.

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

I bought the cake in late September and the pricing is the same, though appears to be sold out on the US site. I’d like to say they could charge more for this one, but I won’t as the price is nice, haha!


A bang up shou for shoure…tea pun intended!


I love it. It makes me sleepy Allan. 1rinse/Short steeps and no sugar. I have it instead of Sleepytime.


O.o tea drunk time yay! I think mine just wore off.


Holy moly! This tea got me real messed up! I did a gong fu session in my gaiwan which is about 4 oz with 6.5 grams. I did 18 steeps and like I said boy was a feeling it for a while. I did two rinses of 10 seconds each and then my steeps were 15, 15, 20, 20, 25, 25, 30, 30 and so on. You can see my pattern. So the 5 seconds might only work if you know when to quit. Lol, I didn’t. In conclusion, awesome tea!
