After 2 and a half weeks in 70% humidity I am going to reevaluate this tea. It is still very smooth and moist in your mouth and when you swallow. It has gained a little thickness since I received it. There is a little bit of mushroom flavor, but overall the flavor is very mild. I usually like meaty, in your face puerh and this seems to be a much lighter puerh. I think it has the potential to age into a nice mouthfeel puerh with good qi. It is also good for someone that wants a milder tea to drink immediately. There is still an interesting minty flavor to the tea, but it has a new musty smell on top. As I keep doing more brews, due to the lack of kuwei and strength, I am starting to do longer steeps. There is an interesting, smooth waxy feeling that coats the mouth with longer steeps.

(Sorry for the mix mash of thoughts, I was writing this as I brewed and noticing things which leaded to a very scattered post)

Previous review: I just received this puerh cake, so it is probably a little flat because of the lower humidity and temp during shipping. I have it in my pumidor and will write a more extensive review after a couple weeks in better conditions. The dry tea smells very minty and sweet, almost like a mint tisane mixed in with the puerh. Once brewed it keeps the minty smell but loses the sweetness. It is very smooth and moistens the mouth. It is lacking a little thickness and staying power but that may be because of the shipping flatness. It has a deep tobacco and mushroom flavor, without the smokiness and bitterness of other young puerhs (making it seem a couple years older than it really is) I can’t wait to see how this progresses, and overall it’s a very good tea

Im really happy to see you enjoying this tea. It is a fine tea that takes on many characteristics.

We just finished our Spring harvest, you may enjoy that even more as it is bolder and has more depth to it, like many springs teas.

Great to hear your thoughts and you are wonderful at putting such a complex tea into words.

Bio

I’m new to the high quality tea world and eager to get started tasting and enjoying a whole new world of flavor. I’m a high school senior, 18 years old, and have been an avid tea drinker my whole life. Previously I would drink generic tea bags. Recently I have been getting into Gong Fu Cha and loose leaf teas. Not only do I enjoy the flavors, but the ceremony is a nice way to relax and unwind after a hard days work. I aspire to try many different teas and meet others from the tea community. If anyone has any teas they would be willing to send as samples I would be very thankful to you for helping expand my tea knowledge and pallet.
