Wow I find it amazing that I was sent a free sample of a tea that costs $95 a cake. So the question that I am sure everybody is wondering is if it turns out to be good enough to actually spend your own money on a tea this good. Quite honestly while it does appear to be a good tea, I highly doubt that it would be worth half its price. The taste is not really unique or different just a good drink now friendly young green puerh that does not have much harshness.

2011 Gaoshanzhai Ancient Tree Pu-erh Cake (易武高山寨饼茶)
Without any question, Gaoshanzhai tea is considered as one of the bests in Yiwu Zhengshan.
In Spring 2011, the price for these premium teas went through the roof, we could hardly afford them. Luckily we found this rare/genuine 2011 Spring production. You have to taste it to understand what’s all the fuss about ‘Yiwu Zhengshan’ and you won’t be disappointed.
True, the price is not wallet friendly for a 2011 new tea, but it is justified for a genuine Gaoshanzhai tea that is rare, pure and scarcely available.
