this tea is rich bold satisfying, in other words everything I like in ripe Puerh.
Wet leaves smelled strongly of prunes.
1st steep produced clear burgundy color sweet tea. with the notes of leather, dried cherry and some wood. i also experienced some numbing of the tip of my tongue.
Later steeps were much darker but still clear. some other notes came along such as dried persimmon and faint tobacco. after several steeps I became sleepy – maybe tea drunk? I really enjoyed this tea, it was quite an experience.
