I just received this puerh cake, so it is probably a little flat because of the lower humidity and temp during shipping. I have it in my pumidor and will write a more extensive review after a couple weeks in better conditions. The dry tea smells very minty and sweet, almost like a mint tisane mixed in with the puerh. Once brewed it keeps the minty smell but loses the sweetness. It is very smooth and moistens the mouth. It is lacking a little thickness and staying power but that may be because of the shipping flatness. It has a deep tobacco and mushroom flavor, without the smokiness and bitterness of other young puerhs (making it seem a couple years older than it really is) I can’t wait to see how this progresses, and overall it’s a very good tea

We are one of the few exporters who live with the farmer.
We represent one of the finest Pu’er teas on the market. The family has been in tea for countless generations, exporting throughout Southern Asia and all of China. In China their tea is sought after, as much Yiwu tea is.
The tea is produced from 300-500 year old trees, some of the few teas on the market that can humbly say so. This tea is produced with such precious care, not a hint of smoke or overproducing. We also have full length video of the entire production process which we include with all our shipments.
This is a meditation tea. A tea to uplift; a tea to calm one who is excited or uplift one who is down. Very fresh, with lingering hints of camphor and a sweatness left on the tongue. The tea induces salvation, rather than drying out the mouth. The 3-7th steeps are of the finest. The tea is savory, with pleasant hints of umami. First few sips are incredibly calming.
Stone pressed. produced by hand, the plantation has never seen a single chemical.
