Quite a treat, this beautiful 2011 silver melon raw pu-erh brews a light orange color at this writing (03/2014), with a light sweet lasting taste, with hints of oat straw, and a depth of persistent flavor that bodes well for aging. I suggested putting it away for a few years, but my partner objected saying she liked it right now. Luckily it is a 500 gram melon so we can both have it the way we would like.

Needed a refreshing and special tea to calm after a particularly long work day. This one continues to delight me anew each time I drink it.

This is an incredible tea, particularly after aging it for an additional three years. It’s lost it’s astringency and the liquor has gotten darker and darker, yet it has a rich grassy characteristic not found in standard pu-erhs.
