Been tasting the 1990, 2000 and 2005 version of this basket, shu that is. Quite a discovery, it’s close to pu erh, but has its own character. It has a smooth woodsy fragrance, although, the 2005 still has a green touch. Quality is good, as it steeps easily 10 times and still has that nice no-nonsense flavor. As it is less popular than pu erh, prices are quite modest.
