From Mandala Tea

I love this mini-brick of ripe tea goodness!

Another great ripe tea from the Haiwan Tea Factory. While it’s size is small, the flavor of this tea is anything but! Excellent, creamy and rich to drink now. A little age under it’s belt will ensure an even smoother flavor.

This is a nice little brick of Shou Pu’er. Keep in mind this is very young! That being said, it doesn’t kill you with tang. It is going to be a bit stronger than some older shou’s but that’s to be expected. All around this is a really nice and predictable brick. Would make a good everyday pu’er for now and would be worth aging in larger quantities as well. Haiwan factory tends to make really consistent and quality pu’ers so I would trust this one to do well with time.

I’ve tried this tea multiple times now and I feel it’s time to finally do a review on it.
I used this sample with my yixing pot exclusively reserved for shou puerh.

This tea is compressed pretty tight it was hard to pry the leaves apart by hand.
A nice mix of small to large leaf mostly smaller to medium sized leaves were noticed.

After I added the leaf to my warmed up yixing pot, I washed the leaves about twice.
This helped open them up and infusion with minimal steep times.
I started off gradual 3/5/8/10/15/20/25/30/60/120

A very mellow that sho wasn’t overly fishy in my opinion.
I found this tea had a gentle warmth.
It certainly helped wake me out of my sleepy morning.
