I bought this tea from Uwajimaya in Seattle. Very interesting tea that transitions flavors from the beginning to end of brewing. The dry leaf has a typical sheng puerh aroma, with some earthy tones. I rinsed the leaves twice, and drank the 3rd through 6th infusions. The wet leaves have a lovely smokey peat-like aroma, which also comes across very well in the taste. The smokiness combined with the minerality of this tea is quite refreshing. Once the smokiness has passed, a light honey flavor coats the mouth, and gives a very pleasant aftertase. 5 minutes after my last cup, I still tasted the honey sweetness, and this flavor lingered for 15+ minutes.

Flavors: Honey, Mineral, Peat, Smoke

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 g 4 OZ / 130 ML
