From Red Blossom Tea Company

Emperor grade pu-erh teas were first crafted as tributary teas for the Chinese emperor. Only fine young leaves were thought worthy for these imperial gifts. While crafted in Menghai County of Yunnan, our 1998 Emperor Pu-erh was acquired from Guangzhou, where the higher humidity gives the tea a thick, smooth quality. A return to the lower humidity Northern California climate in 2006 has slowed the aging process, allowing the tea to develop more complexity over time.

Emperor grade pu-erhs are typically finished as shou or finished teas – a process that mimics the slow gradual aging of sheng pu-erhs. The result is a tea that is slightly malty and rich – with a robust character that brings to mind earth after rain, dried leaves, tobacco and scotch.

This is a very generous sample from teafriend .
8g 90ml Yixing teapot 212F
Rinse and short steeps
The brew is dark, thick and rich. Flavors are unusual, savory, some spice.
I really enjoyed it. It also had a strong qi that sent me into nice nap. It was pretty refreshing.
Thank you so much teafriend for sharing. I wish I could get more of it, but it’s not available on Red Blossom website

Of the Pu-erhs I have tried, this one is a great middle of the road example. Super basic, fairly easy to brew, all the good things about a Pu-erh front and center with a great balance, nothing surprising or super special.

Nice and rich and malty, just like a great Pu-erh should be. This is what I think of as a great benchmark for anyone interested in getting into high grade, very good Pu-erhs. I love it!
