Smell Of wet leaves Woodsy. Earthy, cedary notes

Flavor/Aroma Smooth. Woodsy. Balsa/cedar-wood taste. Leathery notes on the finish. Warming Cha-Qi

This is one of my first sheng/pure Pu-Erh teas. It was very smooth tasting, with a silky mouth feel. It was really hard to pick out the nuances (since i’m new to tea drinking and pu-erhs in general..I find it VERY HARD to describe the tastes i’m experiencing and put it into words..it’s difficult to TASTE tea ;) of the tea and compare it to something. Describing tea is very similar to expressing how you feel when you listen to your favorite song/music.!! Sometimes it’s an inner experience that’s hard to bring to the surface!! The Earthy /woodsy (very mild) quality of this tea was very comforting and warming!! Besides the fact that it had a very discernible “Cha Qi” ( I have been reading alot about Cha Qi..does anyone have anymore information about it??)…warming , then energizing, then relaxing,, intriguing indeed ;) This is a tea that is probably very good for beginners into the Pu-erh Path…it wasn’t overly “Earthy” and it had a very silky quality that is quite pleasurable and comforting!!
