This sample comes off to me as being an unusually sweet and smooth young puerh. Quite honestly if it was not labeled as and brewed as puerh, I would believe it was a green tea if somebody were to hand me a cup of it and not tell me what it was first. Or at least the early infusions after which while it kept up on the same smooth sweet taste it started to turn my stomach in not such a good way so I threw out the rest of it.
2009 Yiwu Big Green Pu-erh Tea Brick
Yiwu Big Green Pu-erh Tea Brick
This tightly compressed kilo tea brick is made of the tea leaves from Yiwu, it tasted slightly aged, and its brewed soup is orange red, a typical Yiwu affair for those who love Yiwu.
The brick shows off Yiwu Zhengshan in a good way. The broth is highly clear but thick in throat feel, with sugar cane smell and sweetness. It is easy and interesting, but not too much pungent and bitter.
