Okay…I am official sold in buying pu-erh cakes now! I just love how this tea imparts the usual flavors of pu-erh but it gives of notes of dates and camphor that adds a bit of sweetness and kick. The first brews were light and lively that gave off notes of camphor, then it slowly introduces itself after the longer brews as pu-erh being all earthy, a bit leathery, just with a slight sweetness of dates. Amazing! Just a simple trip to a whole foods in SoCal and a kind lady who I recognized now as the proprietor of Bana served who me this tea herself! I glad to say i bought a box or two knowing I"ll buy a cake of her Pu-Erh soon!

Started the day with this one today. Wrote a proper review on my blog, but thought I’d just mention briefly what I thought here.

It’s a delicious tea, and changes quite remarkably from one infusion to the next. The first infusion was very smooth, with a nice nutty sweetness. As it cooled I noticed that the tea was showing some tartiness in the mouth. With the next few infusions, the liquor was much darker, but it strikes a good balance between that earthiness that you typically find with pu-erh, and citrus and almond flavours. Very delicious.
