Very smooth. The liquor is dark brown, certainly, but not black, which I think speaks well of the leaves. It tastes of cocoa, with a little bit of leather and a gentle tang of eucalyptus. A very interesting Shou Puer indeed.
This fine 250 gram cake is made of large leaves selected from the old tea trees of the Bulang mountains in Yunnan. Rinsing releases warm aromas of wood and leather. Its soft and velvety liquor offers finely tangy nuances of fresh herbs (sorrel) of astonishing persistence. A tea which leaves a vivid impression on the palate!
