So far its one of the less remarkable shengs I have come across.
Smoky, rather lifeless and devoid of flavor/ intensity.
Hoping this stuff will surprise me after it airs out a bit in a jar.

I broke the first rule of puer:
always buy sample first. do not buy entire cake.
I bought based on a few good ratings.
Maybe it was exposed to bar conditions during shipping, or the particular cake I received was different.

UPDATE: just did another disappointing session with this tea. after several cups, my reaction was same as last time: do a compensation tea session with something more pleasant. My tea friend did not enjoy this tea either. Its rather flat and dead.

Flavors: Smoke, Wood

I broke it several times to great success. Shipping costs factor in to my decision, and there’s always someone that you can pass it on to, or time that may improve it.
