Dark brown almost black in color with a woodsy earthy aroma. The tea tastes of wood and earth, which are flavors I enjoy in a Pu-erh tea. It is not really sweet at all and is quite light and smooth. The aftertaste is nice and mute. Good stuff.

A nice, lighter golden alternative to my usual pu-erh. Teavivre was nice enough to send me a sample of this along with an order, and it’s very much appreciated! Warm, mouth-feel, stomach settling and relaxing. “Golden buds” describes it well. Nice to enjoy on a cold day when you need a hearty tea to warm up with!
