Simply put, this tea is exceptional. It brews a dark amber soup that is rather clean considering its age. The leaves produce a wonderful honey-like, peachy aroma – one of a kind. Due to its compression, the leaves are, in general, not intact and it does take a few steeps to reveal its true character. However, its worth the wait. The tea is perfectly balanced with sweetness, astringency and a soft hui gan near the end. In my opinion, this is essentially the profile one seeks when dry-storing puerhs.
