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 :)

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

a yummy tea! :) tastes like strong roses too :) though when brewed it smells a tad bit fishy but for some reason has no fishy taste :) maybe it should be aged more thus why the fishy smell. still a yummy tea. thank you to the staff at Yunnan sourcing and to Scott Wilson

If it smells fishy, give it a “rinse” first. Use slightly cooler water than you would for brewing, and just dunk it for 5 or 10 seconds. I find it helps

(also, dump the rinse and then brew like you normally would)

i do rinse it :P but i don’t mind the fishiness ;)

Indigobloom

in that case, enjoy! :)

what an awesome pu-ehr! I can taste a tad bit of camphor and a lot of mushroom :) although its hard to pry from the brick (as it is dry) there’s like no fishy taste :) (even though I don’t mind the fishy taste) it tastes best when I let it steep for quite a while. many thanks to Yunnan sourcing and scot Wilson for this wonderful tea! :D
