From Yunnan Sourcing

100g raw pu’er; only buds
This little tea cake is composed entirely of first flush of spring sun-dried silver needles from the county of Yong De in Lincang. It is stone-pressed by hand in the traditional manner. Our silver needle cake can be aged over the years and will develop a textured and sweet taste.

This tea should not be confused with silver needles white tea, which is heat dried and cannot be aged. Our silver needle cake is composed of sun-dried material and was processed as a traditional raw pu-erh.

So I was drinking this tea, thinking it tasted like a pretty decent white tea. Nothing special, just a more malty silver needle. Then I let my friend have a sip.

“It tastes like froot loops,” he said.

And bam, that’s all I can taste now. It’s like a curse or something—I can’t help but taste froot loops every time I sip this tea. Which isn’t a bad thing, it’s a pretty great cereal. And I can still taste the other notes—hay, malt, fruit—it just mostly tastes like breakfast cereal.
