Review: 2012 Douji Mini Golden Tea Brick (Raw Puerh)

The bricks are a 5x3 matrix, each weighing 6g, giving a total of 90g in the Xiaojinzhuan [little golden brick].  Unlike most "nibbles", such as the usually-grim mini-tuocha or mini-bricks mentioned before, these do give off a clean, sweet scent once they have sat in the air for a little while.  "It smells like real tea", I have in my journal.

 

I expect the first infusion to be underpowered, due to the tight compression which causes the leaves to take a few brews to separate.  However, it is good right from the off: the soup is yellow (turning orange in the air, as pictured above), and the brew is penetrating, sweet, and surprisingly cooling.
