Description

These lovely bricks have seen twelve years of well-controlled Guangdong dry storage! The tea is smooth, aromatic and very pleasant to drink. The Haiwan factory was started by one of the original creators of the wet piling method for shu pu erh, and he took his knowledge earned at the Menghai Tea Factory with him to Haiwan, where he further refined his process. This is a lovely example of Zou Liang Bing's expertise at producing excellent shu pu erh! 2006 was the year when Haiwan moved to Anning, and this tea was produced at their new plant in their first year of operation. 


This tea is excellent value, considering its history and how lovely it is to drink, as well as how nicely aged it is. The aroma and taste are all jujube, without even the slightest hint of camphor, so if you're camphor averse, this may be the ripe brick for you! The liquor is thick and smooth, with balanced sweetness, saltiness and bitterness, almost like when eating a dry Chinese prune. The tea also has nice longevity in your teapot (or gaiwan, if you prefer). I highly recommend purchasing this with a sample of the 2007 Kunming Dry Storage Haiwan 7588 Brick ( https://www.tealifehk.com/products/2007-guangdong-dry-storage-haiwan-7588-ripe-pu-erh-brick-50g ) so you can see how good Guangdong and Kunming storage with the same recipe (albeit a year apart) give you a different end result down the line!

Brewing suggestion: Full boil, with water of low hardness (15-35 mg/L, with 1-3mg/L of magnesium). Rinse twice, and start with 10-15 second infusions for the first two or three infusions, then add 10-15 seconds to each successive infusion. If the liquor is too weak, add more time. 

Volume discounts may be available on this tea! Please contact me for details.
