Description

These ripe pu erh bricks are from my own warehouse storage here in Hong Kong! I originally bought these bricks in early 2016, after I bought a Taiwanese-dry stored 7581 brick from the 90s while in Taipei. I absolutely fell in love with the 7581 recipe after! The 7581 recipe was originally created for Hong Kong pu erh dealers who were using the traditional storage method. Shu pu erh was meant to be a shortcut to traditional storage, but the Hong Kong dealers went ahead and put the bricks into basement storage anyway! Most Hong Kong dealers who carry these bricks still put them into basements first to this day, since the traditional storage character is what Hong Kong people expect from their pu erh (as I did until I realized sheng pu erh and dry storage existed back in 2012)!


These bricks spent four or five months at home in Hong Kong (55 and then 37 floors up on Lantau, the largest island in Hong Kong), before I moved them to my 11th floor warehouse in June 2016, where they have been stored ever since. 

These bricks were purchased directly from CNNP in Kunming. When they arrived, they were unpalatable due to the extremely dry storage in the CNNP warehouse there. The tea is now smooth, but still pleasantly bitter, with distinct jujube flavor and just the slightest fleeting hint of camphor. The bricks have that lovely fresh bread note I seem to get from my home storage, but it is more subtle in these warehouse-stored bricks. There is not the slightest hint of visible mold on these bricks, but they are now nice and loose and easy to break up!

The light bitterness and thick, smooth liquor with the jujube made me feel like I was drinking dark chocolate, which was an interesting thought!

I am very fond of this recipe and really enjoy drinking it! These are great to drink now, and can be aged further, of course, if desired!
