This tea is for sale on Amazon for $25.00. I bought it at the local Asian market for $7.99. I guess it pays to shop. Brewed in the Yixing it has a dark Reddish brown liquor with a light aroma. None of the unpleasant flavors or aromas one may expect with a young Shu. All in all so far I am quite content with this. Cup #2 is far better. An almost purple liquor with a slight camphor sensation. Out of the 2 teas I got at the Asian Market this is far superior. This is a fantastick everyday Pu-Erh. I am getting that warm glow. I am very happy with this one….
I actually gave this a 97 last time. In all fairness it was much lower. Sorry I did not notice. It is a very nice tea. Today it is smooth, robust and warming. There is none of the unpleasant odors or flavors that one may experience with a lower priced Shu. I may have scored it a 97 just for the fact that I was so stoked to find such a good tea for what I would consider to be a steal. Gong Xi Fa Ca
