From Xinghai

Xinghai tea factory of Menghai is one of the classic producers of Ripe Pu-erh tea. This tea was pressed from high grade Gong Ting and 1st grade fermented tea from 2008. The Dragon cake (Yellow Label) is slightly lighter fermentation and carries a slight bitterness and stronger “cha qi”. The Phoenix cake (Red label) has a higher degree of fermentation and feels more smooth and soft. Both will age well, the Dragon cake being lighter fermentation will age more gradually.

A nice little cake. Fairly loose compression, tiny leaves (I mean really tiny). After a 20s rinse, the tea broke open FAST! I did 5-10s steeps, but could have gone with 2s the tea brewed so fast. Dark, dark color with a cocoa, earthy, leathery, raisin flavor. Being such a fine grade leaf the tea steeped out in 5-6 steepings, but they were delicious! A good one for a daily drinker.
