broken up cake has been sitting paper canister for 2 days now.
Was easy to pry open with a makeshift pu erh pick made from a filed broken tipped screwdriver. (how romantic) resulting in only 5g of broken leaf+ dust.

dropped a 7g chunk plus a few loose leaves in glass pot, filled to approx 200ml each time.
washed the tea with probably 80deg water and let sit for a few min.

this time the initial warmed leaf aroma was not as stunning as on the first encounter with this tea , perhaps due to the fact that a large chunk rather than more broken up pieces was placed in a pot that was probably not as warm.

enjoyed several good infusions well received a group of five. smooth, well rounded, nice richness and depth. not an explosion of flavor and aroma yet certainly complex and satisfying.
