This the first raw puerh that I've had that has almost a bbq taste. It's very interesting but perhaps not for me. I recommend trying a sample before going ham.
I'm relatively new to puerh, but all the young puerhs I've tried had a young taste to them.
This one doesn't. It's earthy, which is a taste I've only had with older ones.
And it is very enjoyable..
I'm actually thinking of buying a whole cake for ageing..
A thicker sheng with a creamy mouthfeel and classic campfire essence. The 500+-year-old trees humble you through this tea.
The leaf material is surprisingly darker than I expected in a 2017 cake! That's a good thing!! Has that nice puerh sweet spiciness that slowly diminishes into a nice sweet flavor for many infusions. Out of about 6ish grams, I got a good 9 infusions before color lightened up and many more subtle sweet infusions beyond that. I'm no puerh expert, but out of the raw puerhs I've tried this definitely seems to be a decent quality one and worth picking up a whole cake for the price!
