2006 Haiwan Ripe Pu-erh Tea Tribute Brick

From Yunnan Sourcing  $13 for a 100 g brick.

 This was about as expected, a cool looking brick of tea made with mediocre finely cut material. Nothing shocking about the tea not being that great since the brick is pressed into a cool pattern. It was drinkable, but just a average or slightly below average tea. If I get another I would just display it.


  1. That is really cool. I just discovered tea bricks and I am still awestruck by their novelty and history. Have you ever had any pressed tea bricks that were made of high quality tea? I hope to find one soon.

    1. I have had some decent pressed bricks, nothing outstanding. The better ones were made with larger leaf material and pressed quite a bit looser than this. The ones that have designs like this are made from finely cut leaves.
