As always with mini-bricks I split it down the middle to half its thickness to increase the brewing surface area. As one that generally does not like mini brick puerh, even premium quality ones I have to admit that this is clearly the best one yet. It is a soft edges and a very distinct mellow Menghai scent which has sadly been becoming more rare even among Menghai area shu productions in my experience. I was also impressed by the fact that I could get a good five brews out of the leaves and the sixth brew was weak but still drinkable, which is saying a lot considering that I like my ripe puerh very strong. Too bad I just placed a large puerh order otherwise I would seriously consider ordering some of these.
This is really nice. I tried a few cups of this when it arrived, and I can tell it’s going to be a really good tea. Smooth and earthy. I like these bricks sometimes for convenience, since they come segmented you won’t need your tea knife. I’ll be back to drink more of this one in 2015… It’s back in the tea cabinet for some aging.
First, thanks for expanding my tea world, boychik. :)
As to the tea, it’s okay. I did multiple infusions for an increasing 15 seconds per. At about the 1 minute mark was where it was a tea in which I could taste distinct flavor. It seemed pretty mineral. And holy cow, after about 3 minutes it’s as dark as pitch!
I think maybe my palate just needs more expansion before I can properly appreciate pu-erh. This wouldn’t be anything I searched out.
