I’ve come to really enjoy this tea more and more each time I prepare it. I’m amazed at how crisp and mellow this tea is at this stage. The leaves of this cake aren’t just large they’re HUGE. I compared this cake with another cake from Nannou from 2007 (this cake is 2006) and was very impressed with this cake in comparison. In general top notch flavor, it’s not bitter, and it’s great tasting now – but I plan on keeping some for aging purposes.

For steeping it, I’ve found the higher temperatures seem to work well with it, I prefer to use a yixing pot with it, and let it steep for a long time after the first few times. This is a very approachable pu erh, and as noted, I’m enjoying this tea more and more with each tasting.
