A most unusual tea. The tannins are all but a memory here. I suppose this is partly why it is a tribute tea. The beverage seems very mellow with a hefty load of earthiness on the palate. The infusion is densely brown, almost the color of coffee. Not a ton of character in the tea but I am somewhat new to pu-erh style so I am going to have to revisit it. Maybe I will notice a subtlety I missed the first go round. It is a tea that comforts the stomach.
