2010 Haiwan “Pu-erh Square Brick” Ripe Pu-erh tea * 100 grams

This little brick is produced with small leaf gong ting and medium grade 3 leaves. Expertly fermented under the watchful eye of Zhou Bing Liang this tea is a perfect example of why Haiwan ripe teas are not only a great value but will age just as well as a “Da Yi” ripe cake or brick! This mini brick brews a up a rich and creamy brew. A little aging will make this into an exceptional tea!

Ex-Manager of the Menghai Tea Factory Mr. Zhou Bing Liang started theHaiwan Tea Factory a few years back. Bringing with him his excellencein selecting, blending and fermenting compressed Pu-erhs. I visitedtheir tea factory in Anning (Mr. Zhou retired here due to abundant hotsprings!) and found it to be the cleanest factory I have been to sofar. Due to Mr. Zhou’s deep relationship with producers in the SixFamous Tea Mountain area of Xishuangbanna he has been able to procure(highly sought after) leaves from that region to compose his Pu-erh teacakes.

I bought this tea because I liked the 2009 version with the identical looking box. This one is decent, but I do prefer the 2009. 2010’s brick is a little less sweet, has a bit less body to it. It also gives out sooner. Woody flavors expected from a ripe puerh are present, and it develops a sourness which I find slightly off-putting if oversteeped. Once the tea starts to give out, a distinct metallic flavor is noticed. Pretty decent, but as I said, I prefer the 2009. Not sure if that’s due to the one year difference (I doubt it) or if they just have different material. Oh, and the 2009 is so much easier to break apart. I believe the proper tool for breaking apart this 2010 brick would be a hammer and chisel…holy crap, tea dust and frag everywhere.

so i broke off a small corner off and rinsed it for 30 seconds and then broke the wet leaves further. then i rinsed again for 30 seconds, and let sit out of water for 30 minutes.

grandpa style in little glass pitchure:

and thus was a great outcome!

im glad it still had the metallic coppery taste (and earth too). one thing new to me is, a mouth numbing effect that was quite pleasant. this tea has aged well over 8 months.

my dear followers and tea fans, i suggest you give it a try as i now rate this a 90 up from 80
