From Canton Tea Co

This easy-drinking loose puerh (ie not compressed into a cake, nest or brick etc) is from a small factory in Lincang, Yunnan, the home of puerh tea. Its earthy aromas and sweet after taste make it a perfect everyday puerh tea. Made in 2007, it has already mellowed slightly, but there’s still plenty of potential for it to mature and develop in taste for up to 20 years.

Yixing teapot – 370ml of which I will only be filling half way as it’s for one so roughly 175ml-200ml
Tea weight – 5g
Water temp – 95°C
Steeping times – 15 second increments

The leaves have a musky leather aroma and rich earthen charm. The ageing process seems to have been very kind so far.

The flavour features thick, smoky, sweet, musky, earthen clay elements. Rather smooth considering the amount of different rich flavours it contains.

A nice Puerh that should improve nicely as it ages, if I can keep myself from drinking it all that is.
