1980s Aged, Sheng, Wet-stored pu erh cake
I had completely forgotten about this tea. I get so used to trying my usual teas that sometimes I forget about the cakes I have stashed away. This one I picked up in Taiwan before I left 4 years ago and it only seems to have gotten better over time.
The flavours and aromas have their usual earthy feel to them, however, the spice in this one is a smooth clove with a smokey hui gan (lasting flavour on the back of the tongue). The energy is light, but it will definitely lead to that feeling of tea drunkenness when I take the time to sit and meditate over it. A fine red label tea, to be sure.
