This one is a decent/good Puerh to me, Slightly “fishy” aroma at first in the rinse and first steep that was gone by the second steep(perhaps i’ll break one and air it out next time). The color is quite very dark almost completely black and “thick”. The flavor is nice a solid, earthy and slightly sweet with a pleasant “doughy” tast that is reminiscent of Pie Crust which was very nice. Best of all to me was the leafe itself, intact, large leafe pieces, no crumbling and very little stems. Good Tea!
I added this Tea here but No Photo, Sorry Steepster just ain’t gonna let me add the photo, oh well at least the tea is logged :)
Yi Tribal Puerh(coins)
A deeply fermented puer with a smoothness followed by slight fruity notes with an autumn like sweetness

They are then expertly pressed into a convenient 6g disc and then individually wrapped in gold foil, making the perfect size for brewing or to take your tea with you.
