From Menghai Tea Factory (berylleb on ebay)

The tight brick tea is a tea Menghai 2005 produced a very special! The origins of the tea from the period of history to start. A particularly significant event for the tea industry in 2004, and that is the industry leader Menghai restructuring, from the change from state-owned into private companies! This is also the reason why this tea Menghai materials used so far the most rough old is the most distinctive a tea.
The tight brick tea is made from more mature tea leaves and the three grade tea leaves blended to perfection. The brick has been stored for about 8 years, the tea leaves have fermented by nature air for about 8 years, they have contained many elements which are very benefit for our health, the tea leaves has been changed into red from green. It yields a bright orange red, pure aroma and a fresh flavor with balanced sweet aftertaste.

Finally! Dark orange liquor!

This is the first nicely aged sheng i have tried that i can truly rant to my friends about.

meduim-low astringency throughout , very very little kuwei (bitter), the best part about this tea is the huigan (returning sweetness), that lasts throughout the entire session, and long after youve stopped drinking.
I found this 250g brick for 28 dollars including shipping.
I was very skeptical of this bricks authenticity, not able to find much info on it (typical for puerh) but i was able to find a picure of this brick in a book, it seemed to check out.

I love this tea

This is an aged tea. It brews up a dark orange color. It had little bitterness in the initial two steeps then bitterness emerged in the third steep. It is a strong in your face sort of tea. Unfortunately, it also had a pronounced sour note to it. I do not know if I brewed it wrong but it was sour in character throughout ten steeps. On the plus side it had none of the unpleasant aged character teas often develop and the sour note may be a matter of having used too much tea. I will refrain from giving this a rating until I get a chance to try again.

I brewed this ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 10.5g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min.

This is till young being pressed into a brick. I think it needs another decade on it to be right.
