One of my favorite Dayi teas! Smooth and mellow with big body, not too earthy. This is a well balanced shou pu er, perfect to introduce someone to pu er for the first time. I’ve read that at one time this was the highest quality tea they would export over seas. Back in the day, if the was the best you could get, you were still savoring some delicious tea! Good cha qi too, this is one of my favorites!
