Another free sample from Puerhshop. I am not really sure how to evaluate a semi aged puerh as it did not start out like this and under proper storage a cake of this will not remain like this long term. This tea does not have any of the harshness or smoke that is common in young puerh and is in an state now that it could likely easily be mistaken for a sweeter green oolong that is not floral.

Yiwu King of Kings Ancient Tree Green Pu-erh Tea Cake (易武正山王中王古树园饼)
From famous Yiwu Manluo Tea Factory comes this light-aged tea cake, a classic Yiwu. This is a classic Yiwu that brews a coppertone liquor tasted both mellow and full in the mouth.
The cake is made of tea leaves harvested from ancient trees in Spring from Yiwu mountains, considering it a truly authentic rare and unique Pu-erh tea. It went into aging in Yiwu township that delivered a taste of a good green Pu-erh that was in its adolescent age.
