From Xiaguan Tea Factory

Bao Yan Brick tea is a traditional products of Xiaguan Tea Factory for almost half decade. The tea is consumed by the people of Tibet, Xinjiang and Mongolia for brewing their traditional Yak butter tea. Although it is not as mellow as the 2002 but flavour and characteristic remain the same with the aged ones. It is sweet, thick, rich in aroma, woody and what so called “tobacco flavour” with a bright yellow broth. This is a bloody cheap young Pu but taste is not like young Pu at all. (Red Lantern Tea)

The rainy weather today put me in the mood for a bit of puerh. However, my mom did a bit of tidying up, so it took a while to locate this. After describing what it was, she brought me a plastic food container sealed with brown packaging tape with a label written in black marker: “Tea Block”.

My prying off skills are next to nonexistent, so I ended up with a fair amount of tea dust. Popped it in my teeny 50ml yixing. The dark orange tea soup tasted a bit woody, with this minty thing going on, and somewhat sweet. No smokiness that I can determine. To my untrained palate, this was pretty likeable, and with the price (less than $5 for 250g) I don’t have to worry about knocking it about with my bad brewing. However for some reason after I drink this my stomach acts up, so maybe it needs to be set aside for a little more time for me to be able to handle it. :( Pity, I really liked how it tastes now.

Is this a sheng or shu? I completely “lol-ed” at the yack butter thing.:) I know what you mean about no prying off skills- that’s why I love my sheng knife!

I love that your mom wrote “tea block” on it. That’s priceless.

@Cofftea: It’s a sheng. Thankfully. I really like how it smells, very “green” and refreshing! I’m still traumatized by last month’s fishpond shu. x_x I have a cute little pu-erh dagger, too, but it seems pretty useless. Should probably invest in a decent pick. Or sledgehammer. Heaven help me, I own a couple of Xia Guan tuos.

@__Morgana__: Yup, I love her. And at least I know how to find it next time. “Mooom, did you see my brick of sheng puerh? The Tibetan yak butter one?” “What?” “You know, my, uh… tea block?” "Oh, that. It’s over here, honey.
