From Yunnan Sourcing

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 the Haiwan Tea Factory a few years back. Bringing with him his excellence in selecting, blending and fermenting compressed Pu-erhs. I visited their tea factory in Anning (Mr. Zhou retired here due to abundant hot springs!) and found it to be the cleanest factory I have been to so far. Due to Mr. Zhou’s deep relationship with producers in the Six Famous Tea Mountain area of Xishuangbanna he has been able to procure (highly sought after) leaves from that region to compose his Pu-erh tea cakes.

Still one of my favorite ripe teas I’ve tried. It’s a good, cheap workhorse, awesome when you just want to bang out a quick session without feeling like you’re “wasting” some of your higher quality tea. Simple flavors, woody and chocolatey. Rich and thick in the mouth. Definitely some fermentation flavor, but it only comes across in the aftertaste, and not too intensely. Light enough that I don’t find the first steep to be unpleasant when using only one rinse. Sessions don’t last too long due to the small material, but the tea gets going quickly with some of the really dark liquid that I seem to like in shou.

I brewed 5 grams in a 100ml gaiwan at 210f. I gave the customary two rinses then started with a 10 second steep. The material is pretty small so the tea gives very quickly. This one is a surprisingly good ripe. I expected much less for the price. It has a very nice sweetness on the nose and in flavor. Wet leaf smells of sweet tobacco and ripe banana peel with a bit of cherry/fruit sweet and very slight hay. The first couple of steeps were full flavored and very nice. It has a nice ripe aftertaste that I akin to a slight coffee astringency albeit very light. A nice toasty end. It kinda started to give out around steep number 4 but being of small leaf not a big surprise. I would definitely recommend this little brick for an everyday budget drinker. Sweet and nice qi. Tasty ripe for sure.
