2010 American Hao 1005 Pu-erh Brick Tea (美国号1005熟砖)
The waiting is over, finally our first ripen tea brick is available.

Code Name: Chocolate Bar

The brick was made by using Menghai (flavorful) and Lincang (sweet) blend at 2010 Summer in Menghai. To enhance its depth, multiple grade, whole leaf raw materials were mixed. As a true value offer, we use no fancy packing. With no inner ticket and pre-cut shaping, it is nice and easy to break it into pieces for immediate brewing.

The tea was skillfully fermented by a tea fermentation master with 10 plus years of experience under his belt. You would enjoy a clean thick tasty tea with a hint of camphor, pine aroma.

If you like strong puerh than it is important to break up these mini blocks into thinner layers before brewing otherwise one will get weaker infusions. This puerh is on the lighter end of ripe puerh and has a nice smooth taste that is worthy of Puerh Shop’s American Hao label as it good quality that is truly premium tea.

Just received the AH 1005 today in the mail, alongside a vast selection of other Pu’s from PuerhShop. I decided to use my gaiwan for some gongfu, since my only yixing at the moment is reserved for Raw puerh.

Ok, well this ripe pu had a great aroma to begin with. Had that Duiwei (pond/fishy smell) that I seek for in puerh. After rinsing the leaves I began steeping the pu starting at about 10 secs and adding 5 for every succeeding infusion. The liquor started out a dark, opaque brown and the aroma enthralled me. I must say, I was rather disappointed in the flavor though. Not as strong as I originally anticipated. I did a few more infusions before I finally began tasting those bolder flavors that I love so much. After the 11th infusion though I knew that it was pretty much done.

Don’t recommend this tea if you like stronger Puerh. Great for the price, though.

If you like strong puerh I’d recommend breaking up the little blocks into a few thinner layers to open up more surface area to the water. This tea can brew nice and strong but not when it is in one piece as a mini block.
