hmm…. this time around it has a strong camphor taste :P i don’t think there is any shrimpyness but yes, a strong camphor taste :D

maybe because i could break the corners off and the middle did not rinse well?

time for a full review :)

the smell of the dry leaf is a lot like my other pu-ehr review :) a nice musty smell

the smell of the steeped tea is nice and smooth with a somewhat smokey smell

the taste is somewhat smokey but has taste of roses and smooth and somewhat like a black tea :)

I am going to keep the score the same :)

Flavors: Earth, Rose, Smoke

time for a full review :)

when i smell the brick it smells kinda musty but that’s OK :) when i pry at it, it does come off in some chunks but mostly small ones :P

after i rinse it and steep it the smell is lovely :) then i taste it and it does taste more like mushrooms than camphor i think. also has some sweetness too :D

sometimes i like to suck on the used leaves like a candy and it tastes musty with camphor and mushrooms but that’s all fine and dandy :D

even when getting to the center of the brick, it still tastes nice with little to no shrimpy (fishy) taste :D

keeping score the same :)

Flavors: Camphor, Earth, Mushrooms
