Description

These bricks were stored in the far south of Guangdong, right across the border from Hong Kong, by a very successful Cantonese couple who are well established in the pu erh game. Their style of warehousing is excellent and very well balanced (not too wet or dry). I picked out these bricks to try as I'd never seen bamboo-wrapped Dayi bricks before. I'm very glad I did as this is a very interesting tea, and quite hard to come by in the Western market!

There is still some residual smoke aroma to the brick when smelling the tea itself, but it is faint after twelve years of dry storage. 

After two rinses, these were my notes on this tea:


Lovely sweetness and huigan. The smokey note translates to a camphor-like presence in the cup (it isn't quite camphor, but reminiscent of camphor). Aged date and full-bodied Assam black tea notes. Taste reminds me of a good Hong Kong milk tea! Very smooth and clean and the flavor persists on the palate forever. The material used for these bricks was excellent!

Lots of raisin-like character on the palate and after the swallow that lasts a long time. Really lovely. This tea was also excellent to brew the next day after resting overnight, which is a strong indicator of quality base material.

Despite the name, this tea has only a whisper of smoke and what is left is very pleasant indeed. This is an excellent tea, and something really special!

I only have one whole brick of this tea for sale and samples from the other brick (two 250g bricks were wrapped in the bamboo).
