From Haiwan Tea Factory

2011 Haiwan Lao Tong Zhi Old Tree Ripe 500g
This 500 grams tea brick handsomely wrapped and packaged in a box was made using raw material from high mountain arbors. Prepared with great care by Mr. Zhou Bing Liang, the prestigious Pu-erh tea expert who is in charge of the complete tea processing methods to guarantee a premium quality. The tea gives a bright dark red infusion with a rich, smooth mouthfeel and complex flavors. Ready to drink now but certainly worth putting away to produce what is sure to be a rare and valuable treasure in the future.

I appreciate the Anning Haiwan Tea Factory for their decent quality, fairly priced factory teas (Laotongzhi or “Old Comrades”). This one is a solid, inexpensive ripe pu’er brick, composed of middle grade larger mature leaves. This is a basic, straightforward shupu but pleasant enough to be considered a good everyday drinker. A value purchase since it is a 500g brick with all the characteristics that one should expect from a reliable shu – clear reddish-brown color; a smooth and balanced woody flavor; understated warm creaminess; reasonable longevity. I think I prefer the 2006 Haiwan Chen Xiang Zhuan brick I sessioned last week. Both are in the $33-$35 price range but since the earlier described ’06 shu is a 250g brick and today’s tea is 500g, this “Old Tree” is probably a better value for an everyday drinker (like finding a “buy one/get one” special).
