From PuerhShop.com

The tea brick was made by Langhe Tea Factory, commissioned by CNNP for export, it became hard to get at the marketplace unless you had the access to some private reserve.

A great tea wins by its quality and taste. This is properly one of the best Menghai ripen teas I have ever tasted.

The first steeping (10 seconds) didn’t taste like much. I detected a very slight spice taste but that was it. The second and third steepings (15 seconds) brewed up brandy colored and had fragrance notes of leather and horseradish root. It has the same sort of root taste (but not spicy). Fourth steep (25 seconds) is smoother but has the same flavor profile.

Still having stomach problems with cooked puerhs. I don’t have that problem with the raw puerhs. I am puzzled by this since everyone says that puerhs are good for the stomach and settle it down.

I don’t yet now how to rate this one. I will think on it.

I have no idea what would cause it, but could it be an allergy? Stuff with a lot of chilis in it were giving me digestive problems and I found out later that I had a minor food allergy.

Those are really short steeping times!

@tagoti I don’t know. It is only with cooked puerhs. Raw puerhs do not cause any problems. I used to have similar (though lesser) problems with oolongs when I brewed them too hot and too long so it doesn’t sound like an allergy to me.

@Jillian Those are actually recommended times and after the first steeping it really did brew up pretty strong. For example, here is a review of a similar puerh: http://ancientteahorseroad.blogspot.com/2008/08/1994-menghai-factory-7542-chi-tse-beeng.html

Note that his times for steeping are very short. (The first number is the number of the steep and the second number is the number of seconds he steeped it.)
