From Yunnan Sourcing

This bamboo leaf wrapped tea is a meticulously fermented ripe tea from a prominent Menghai area tea factory (Ye Zhuang Shuang Li). Composed of a blend of Meng Song and Bu Lang fermented material gives this a heavy thick taste that is not so far removed from the material’s origins.

Fermented in 2010, this brick has aged just slightly, but enough that the fermented flavor is not over-powering. Further aging will massively improve this high quality material.

Each bamboo leaf pack has two 250 gram bricks inside. The default quantity type is 1 pack (500 grams). You may also choose to purchase one 250 gram brick without the bamboo leaf packing. For Australian customers, the bamboo packing will be removed since we cannot send bamboo wrapped teas “down under”.

Quick lazy review!

I’ve had this for a while but just been lazy. I bought it as a ‘let me drink it as it ages’ puerh. I really like it. I feel it is really good, especially for the price. Two 250g cake for that price is crazy.

The tea is has a full/heavy body and it is pretty smooth. It is pretty earth (not that aged) but not as a cheap/low quality puerh would be. If you are trying puerhs and are still learning how to choose this is one to pick up. If you like ripe puerhs then I consider this tea an inexpensive pleasure.

Tea of the afternoon……

This was one of three free samples that came along with my gaiwan and cups…..all pu’erhs. I guess it is time to get my feet wet on these. Dry it smells pretty good. Earthy, but not in a scary way. (Yes, this is the review of a pu’erh novice, so you might not really want to put a whole lot of stock in my review if this is your usual type of tea…) I rinsed the leaves first, and then brewed for about 30 seconds. This really reminds me of coffee. It is a little more earthy than coffee, but far from the dirt taste I remember from my first experience with a tuo cha. I am thinking the right tools to enjoy this will make the difference. I am not saying pu’erh is something I will reach for regularly as I am more an oolong in the gaiwan type, but it is a nice experience. There is something to be said for the short steeps for certain. It helps that the brew is not so thick as attempting to brew this western style.

As for the teaware, I love my little gaiwan and cups from this vendor. Everything was well wrapped and arrived safely. I even asked for a change in color of the cups (my gaiwain is light blue, but rather than matching cups I originally ordered, I asked for the white instead to see colors better..) and Scott was more than accommodating to see that I got what I wanted. I will order there again at some point, but I think I will go for the less expensive shipping. With EMS my order was here in less than a week.

I may end up with another one in white…. The pattern on it is so pretty.

I’ve already broken one gaiwan and the celadon ones do look like they are sturdy.

Dinosara

Ooh, I love it. I have been looking at an easy gaiwan from them myself. Glad to hear the order experience was good!

ScottTeaMan

Yeah Jen, I really think that one is nice.
