This is my favorite Pu’er so far, I think. I tried it about a month ago, as a sample, and I just got another bag of it, and I want to order more.
It is a skull shining, mind blowing tea that immediately gets my Qi flowing, my ears popping, and brings me into a state of mindfulness.
The tea itself is so amazing to look at.
Dry, it’s a deep mahogany, and it looks so fragile, like books in the library of ancient Atlantis, and if you touched them, they would crumble. When you get it wet, it turns a deep black, and I want to touch it, and when I do, it feels really sturdy, kind of like oak leaves. The smell is sweet and ancient.
And it tastes so good! The only real description I can have of the taste is the aftertaste, which is sweet, with a teensy sparkle of salt, but it’s like someone sprinkled a few granules of a really finely powdered special salt, and every so often, a tiny particle melts on my tongue.
