From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a Gong Ting grade Ripe pu-erh tea fermented using spring 2007 Jing Mai mountain material. The tea has been stored in a loose form in Menghai since that time. Hai Lang tasted more than 20 different gong tings before deciding to use this tea to press these beautiful 200 gram cakes. The brewed tea is a bright deep red-wine color! The taste is smooth and with a sweet after-finish with hints of sugarcane! This has already lost most of its “dui wei” and is ready to drink now. Further aging will make this cake even more flavorful and textured! Limited Quantity!

This is a nice tasting ripe. It has a fair amount of fermentation flavor that I would say has begun to clear. It was a little weak but very present. It lasted maybe five steeps. I didn’t really notice any chocolate notes but I suppose I could have missed them. There was a bit of a light fruity profile towards the end of twelve steeps. It was very good.

I steeped this tea twelve times in a 110ml teapot with 9.9g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 minutes. There were a few steeps left in the leaves.

Not to be confused with the 2012 version of this tea with the same name, that some of you apparently own (but have yet to review! Come on, people!). This is very good tea. It has that signature Hai Lang Hao ripe profile – tangy chocolate, very coffee like. These flavors dissipate, though, after just a few steeps, when the tea becomes a bit bland.

I have not tried any Hai Lang Hao ripe pu-erh and am curious about this signature profile now.
