From menghai (berylleb ebay)

This product uses the leftover nubs of fermented teas from previous years. The nubs, clumps of teas that could not be untangled, are mixed together and steam pressed into fat bricks. It yields a strong, smooth flavor, and the tea can be brewed many times. This is another achievement in Menghai Tea Factory’s tradition of innovation

have been working on this one for 2 days now. this tea is made from leftover clumps of fermented pu-erh. it is a very hard brick to break as it seems to come apart in these “nubs”. aroma is soft with no off scent. used about10 grams in a yixing. since this tea was hard to break i gave it a start with a 30 second wash and could see the color already. first steep 15 second with almost boiling water. pour into the cup and you think you have a cup of coffee on your hands. very bold with a hint of citrus and molasses and a hint of cinnamon. later brew used the same method for brewing and infusion since this tea seems not to let up. i am on day 2 with this one and it still has some clumps that have not broken apart yet. i have been picking at these nubs with my bamboo tongs to slowly break them apart. day 2 eight sweepings later and still as dark as coffee. reminiscent of the Wei Zui Yan in terms of sweetness and taste. well off to another cup of this fine tea.

going on day three of this one. had 2 cups last night the coffee color has lightened but the flavor is still there tonight if it steeps well it will be infusion 13 of this tea. i never take later sessions this far because of the massive flavor loss after about 4 infusions. i think this tea would be excellent on the price per cup cost. it has really amazed me on it’s strength and its stubbornness to give up it still keeps trudging on.

well after 15 infusions time to go old friend you have been a great accompaniment to me. sad to see you go.

This one sounds interesting too. It’s good to know that I’m not the only one re-steeping into the next day, or beyond…
