The 2006 Aromatic Bamboo Roasted Puerh has a light sweet taste with wooden notes to the tea. The taste of bamboo is hard to describe but I think Jim got it down well as being like a hint of rice mixed in with the wooden taste. As it comes to most puerh stuffed into unusual packages it is not the best around but still an acceptable quality. Not to mention the bonus fun of getting to open up the bamboo to get the puerh out.

2006 Aromatic Bamboo Roasted Pu-erh Tea (多味香竹茶)
The fermented large tea leaves harvested in Xishuangbanna were jammed into a fresh aromatic bamboo tube harvested in Guangnan, and then roasted dry to make this special Yunnan Aromatic Bamboo Roasted Pu-erh Tea.
This tea brews a clear soup, rich in flavor, with smell and refreshing infusion of bamboo and a hint of rice.
