Haiwan tea factory is an excellent choice for blended ripe pu-erh as the ex-manager of the Manager of the Menghai tea factory is the founder and general director of the Haiwan tea factory. As a result the "wo dui" fermentation process used in the production of Haiwan Ripe Pu-erhs is very close to that of the Menghai tea factory.
This is a special tip heavy blended ripe cake that was released once per year (2013 and 2014) in both ripe and raw versions.
With Haiwan you are getting a better grade ripe cake for the money than you would get from Menghai. Taste profile is similiar, but usually needs an extra few months to air out.
