a very yummy tea if not the best semi aged sheng ever. i love the mix of flavors. i will do a full review around the 15thhttps://yunnansourcing.com/products/1999-hua-yuan-jing-brand-raw-pu-erh-tea-cake?variant=33112956102
just a note: at a little over 140$ CAD i dont think ill buy a cake soon even the sample is a little over 14$ CAD. but slightly better than 2003 cnnp mengsong iron cake which can be found here —→ https://yunnansourcing.com/products/2003-cnnp-mengsong-qiao-mu-iron-cake-raw-pu-erh-tea-cake
i love both
i received a small sample of lemon slices from teavivre for free with my order.
it would be unfair to do a full review as it’s just lemon slices.
ru yao dragon teapot, gongfucha
one slice: yummy! just a tad weak.
two slices: much better. goes best with two slices and a 265 ml teapot and long steeps.
i even ate the slices. puckery face and all :D
i rate a 90/100. i suggest you try it :D

does anyone know how to dehydrate lemon slices (or any other fruit) without an dehydrator?
does anyone know the health benefits of drinking hot lemon tea?
