The only way I can think to describe it: damp leaves, freshly picked berries still lightly coated with dirt, earth, and cream. I find it a bit hard to explain. Fruity, mellow, while still dark and earthy. Tastes faintly of sweet bread. Tends towards delicate. Not so much in-your-face. A lady pu-erh. Gosh, I realize I’ve been putting off writing a note because I didn’t think I would do it justice. I still don’t think I have. Probably my favorite from Mandala and my special occasion tea for sure.

I distinctly remember that the first time I brewed a cup, I took a sip and my eyes went wide. “Wow.” Then I took another sip right after. "Wooooowwwww." It was love.

I think I’m going to have to order this one too, hahaha! All the reviews make it sound so delish :)

Yay! I am so glad I bought all of this when I had the opportunity in 2009. It is aging nicely and several of the restaurants/tea and coffeehouses we sell to do very well with this tea. I’m so happy you enjoy it. And thank you for writing about it, my friend!
