This tea has a surprising amount of bite for a pu-erh of this age.

I tried brewing this tea different ways (varying the steeping time and leaf amount) and it had a similar overall character, only the strength varied, and less than one might expect.

Earthy, but with a fresh, herbaceous quality in the aroma, that I find is unusual in teas of this age.

I think this tea is very reasonably priced, given its quality and the fact that the leaves go a long way and are good for many infusions.
