One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.

I thought your avatar looked like a psychedelic Rowdy Roddy Piper - and that was a great move it twas... I think I'm on a mission to bust your avatars. Last one was the elevator gals from The Shinning, IIRC. Come 'on - what's next! :lol:

Can anyone give me any information on this particular cake that he has?

He has only 4 different cakes now but that one that I gave a link too he has like 7 of them. Its a little harder trying to go back and forth in email with someone half a day ahead of you :lol:

sorry, no info on these cakes, but I visited this factory in April - you can see some photos here

I wasn't particularly impressed with any of their old growth maocha, but haven't tasted any of their bings.

From the look of them on the website the bings seem to be made of pretty good leaf. Its not broken up nearly as much as some puerhs i've seen. Seems I will have a lot of tea to drink, I will probably store away most of the cakes thought and see what happens :)

I can only tell you that it is a toss up between that one and the yiwu beeng for my favorite yunnan nian cake. It has tigher compression than some of them. I like it.

I will def share my thoughts of these cakes when I get them. I'm sure shipping will take quite awhile but I got a tracking number so atleast I can keep track of it on its journey to me. How was everyone brewing these cakes? I was thinking of purchasing a yixing pot for sheng puerh but will also be trying them in a gaiwan first.

I have had only one session so far with the Premium Alliance cake, brewing it
    6 gr in 150 ml pot , off boil: no rinse,
    infusions: 20 s, 15 s, 25 s, 35 s, 1 m, 1 m,
    2 m, 3 m, 4 m, 5 m, 6 m.
The Premium Alliance wasn't very astringent so it should be fine in a gaiwan.
