bought this to compare with my 2009 mengai red rhyme. great flavor notes all of the fermented taste is gone leaving a great rich flavor from the tip of your tongue to the back. very rich flavor hard to describe not earthy like many pu-erhs almost like a mellowed out keemun. i have a 2009 and if it ages like this one i will like it even more. i think this ranks up there with the 2009 menghai dayi red rhyme and i think there will be another one of these cakes to serve as a backup stash soon. i have not tried secondary infusions but i am sure they will be just as good.

you will have to wait on the addy till i can get you another package of pu-erh out,but i have a couple in mind. i got a sample of jade dew from mandala(ripe) checked the site to get some and they were sold out. so i went on a quest for it and found it. the jade dew is awesome too and when i get a full cake we are going to do some tasting notes on it. sound like a deal? hope you have a great night. if you can does the tea shop you go to in your hometown have a web site? if so can you hook me up with it? thanks!

forgot it is happy luckys i think.

Bonnie

What is happy lucky’s? You’re confusing me. Oh, you can call and order right now and they ship out but they’re expanding the store (remodeling the back) and creating a website and adding more tea’s and such to coordinate with the shop anniversary (that’s what they tell me). I give lots of input to them on what Steepster’s like as far as service and all.

Bonnie

I could send some. I have a small mailer that I could put some in.
