The tea is good but the packaging was not the best. At first glance a mini-brick that is scored to be easily broken down into 9 mini bricks for easy brewing sounds like a good idea. The problem was the inner ticket was a pain to get out but luckily was close to the surface that it wasn’t too bad. For the actual tea be sure to break up the mini brick a bit or at least into 3 thinner layers before brewing as it is too thick to break apart right on its own when brewing. The actual tea is good, especially for a generic factory that tries to copy off of Menghai. The brewed tea is clean with no earthy off tastes and has a lighter mellow brew. Overall this shu puerh is better than most but not good enough to be considered an upper end premium quality puerh.
