If you’re looking for something special and VERY different, here you have it. Upon first impression, the chunk of tea, thanks to JC, looked like a chunk of dusty dirt with small plant roots embedded within. As the tea seemed very dusty, I decided to give it two washes instead of one. There is one way I can describe the aroma of the wet leaves… an intense wet forest moss… much more so than most shou puerhs I’ve had. I mean, it literally smells like dirt/forest moss! I would say the taste of the tea itself is somewhat consistent with the aroma… very interesting and pleasant. I recommend this tea to anyone who enjoys that earthy taste. Very unique tea. 80/100

I liked this one. It is very weird indeed. I couldn’t define it as either Sheng or Shou, I know is not processed as a Shou, but it definitely isn’t a Sheng. It’s that blurred Heicha spectrum of wood and bark tastes.

Hello!

My name is Samuel and I’ve been interested in the world of teas for about two years now. I began, as most, experimenting with several varieties of teas. I eventually encountered the world of puerh teas – my tea of choice.

I’m an avid birder and mineral collector. Feel free to message me if you’re interested in either. I am a graduate student in mathematics.
