I received this as a freebie sample from Pu-erh shop. I always like getting samples especially free. I’ve been drinking pu for over year now and I can say I’ve never had a tea that makes my tongue numb… like novacaine. Truly weird. I’ve had multiple shu from menghai, and CNNP and my favorite Xiaguan and I’ve never experienced something like this. I will say that 2009 is newest shu I’ve tried so maybe that is what it is attributed to. Not a fan of this tea, and since the sample is gone thats a good thing. I did continue to infuse the tea until it was little more than colored water so I think I gave it ample chance but I’m not impressed. If this is a connoisseur tea then I’m really missing something.
