From Menghai Tea Factory (berylleb on ebay)

The ripe Pu’er Brick is Menghai Factory’s traditional ripe tea brick. Young robust leaves are lightly fermented to maintain the tea’s vitality. It yields a bright red broth with a bold, slightly bitter flavor and hints of aged aroma. This ripe tea brick was especially made for collection and storage.

For me, this is a tea that changes dramatically depending on the vessel it is served in. I’m not a big fan of this tea in the traditional small tea cups. The flavor is deep and rich with not a lot of complexity when served in this manner. I’d give it a 64. However, when served in a standard american mug the flavor improves dramatically! A sweetness comes out to complement the richness of the tea. Dark, rich and sweet this tea is one of my favorites when I am on the go, such as in the car or at a seminar when I can do gong fu. I’ll still brew it using a yixing or chinese tea pot and combine 2 steepings in the mug. In this manner I’ll give it a 90. Not bad from one of the traditional Dayi recipes.

I enjoy this one also.

I talked to Daniel at thechineseteashop.com when I was there and he said the 7262 is one of his favorite shou’s. I bought a sample of a 2003 which I have yet to try… might have to pull it out here and see how 6 years of aging might change this tea!

This shou is very pleasant. Sweet woody creamy with some wine notes. The brew is dark burgundy color, so pretty. Its mellow, no off putting smell or taste. very nice and relaxing. first couple steeps numbed my tongue.

numbed your tongue because it was too hot or because of the tea? :/

TheTeaFairy

I love that numb feeling you get from pu’erh sometimes…It seems I get that more often with sheng though I have noticed. Do you get it often yourself?

boychik

donkeytiara,its because of a tea. kinda like anesthesia.
TheTeaFairy, Not often, mostly with Menghai. sheng too but not often
