Description:

This brick was stored in Kunming since 2006, it was made by using the best raw materials Haiwan Tea Factory could find.

A few factors make this tea brick very expensive. 1. it's rare as it's hard to get it nowadays at the marketplace; 2. it's a certified 'Organic'; 3. its raw materials were harvested from ancient tea trees; 4. it's big 500g heavy, the equivalent of two standard 250g bricks, 5. it's a collector's item. Once you considered all of these factors, you may understand why it's so expensive.

In any event, the tea tasted OK, the rough edge is almost gone, it's a lot easy to appreciate the genuine Pasha tea: a fragrant bright yellow mellowed tea with a nice throat feel.

Organic Pasha Brick

5 stars 3.5 This review helped: +1 / 0

This tea in the form of 400g cake is my big favorite, so when I found out that it is available on puerhshop.com as 500g bricks, I could not resist and bought one piece. Brick is very tightly pressed. The tea smells after tobacco when unwrapped. After rinsing the tea produces intense tobacco - herbal smell, but the tobacco component is dominant. The infusion’s color is pale yellow to greenish, much lighter than the version in the cake. The taste is again dominated by tobacco. Herbs and fruitiness are suppressed in the background. Tobacco is actually present in the infusion throughout the whole tea-time. You can prepare 9 to 10 infusions. I was slightly disappointed after the first tasting of this brick. I think that due to the tight pressing and also due to the dry storage in Kunming the process of aging was not as good as in case of cake. Well, I will see how the brick develop in the future. So fare I definitely prefer this tea in the form of cake.

Quotes

„What instead happens is that some teas require multiple tastings to reveal themselves one way or another. Sometimes the first time you brew a tea it doesn’t come out quite right not because it’s bad, but because you are still adjusting to it. It helps when you’re using the same teawares all the time, so that the only variable is the tea“
