From Yunnan Sourcing

What happens when you take high quality Bu Lang Mountain wild arbor mao cha and ask one of Menghai’s best fermentation masters to carefully oversee it’s 45 day fermentation process? You get a super high quality ripe pu-erh that has character and intensity that we typically only see in an aged raw pu-erh. Hai Lang’s 2 kilogram Bu Lang Wild Arbor ripe pu-erh brick is definitely a step in the right direction for those who seek a return to the more traditional approach to ripe pu-erh. The results are something the drinker needs to determine for themselves, but with a little aging I am confident you won’t be disappointed! Very new so there is still some “dui wei”, but over the next few months to a year that will dissipate leaving a clean thick flavor and clear tea soup.

This is a very good pu’er. The Yunnan Sourcing site states something about an “off” taste, but that must have been at the time it came into his possession.

Anyway, we consider this our house brew, at least I do. It has a very strong, black tea like quality, hints of astringency, sweetness, and “wildness.” The cha-qi is very high and though this can be brewed for a long time, it is probably most enjoyable Chinese style, something like 30s/1m/1m/1m/2m.

I’ve had this tea for over a year and a half. It hasn’t changed as much as some of the others. It has a consistent quality from cup to cup.

I convinced the “Chairman” to pick this one for us tonight after she played with the catnip mouse that I enticed her with.
i did the 8 gram sample with a 5 second ’wash" and brewed it in the Gaiwan after giving it a 30 min rest.
The brew with the first infusion was a nice burgundy after a 5 second steep. It gives a nice brew. No of scents and nice to see in the cup. I gives a nice woody , sweet and a touch drying brew. It is very nice and a very smooth brew to be as young as this one is. Very nice and I am grateful for the one who allowed me to try it. Nice and Nice.

what do you mean by rest? letting the washed leaves sit before brewing? and what does it do?

I liked this brick. I will have to break it out soon for a review. Tonight, unfortunately, I am avoiding caffeine. Tomorrow and the next day I am not. The early days are taking a toll on my tea drinking.

Yeah Kirk, I hit them with the water and rinse and it helps the leaf and flavor open up for a better brew.
Allan sorry as i know all about those early days. i used to get up at 1:30 am to get ready for work. takes a BIG toll on your tea drinking.
I think I will eventually have to buy one of these myself or split one. 2Kg a lot of tea maybe a 4 way split!

oh, i see :D

My black cat learned fetch with rabbit hair mice toys. But we had to sit in the same chair everyday and toss the mouse, and we had to sit in that one chair for him to get it as a routine.
