A loose, frosted pu erh like old khaki. It leaves slightly slimy-looking black-green nuggets in the pot, which I’m personally rather a fan of, and retains the same evocative scent of old boxes in the cup as it does in the packet. What little bitterness there is is superseded by an almost floral aftertaste, which comes out in a longer brewing time, and improves the tea. Rich (though not especially for a pu erh), and mellow.
