A decent aged tea, that offers a good value.

The aroma is woody and floral initially. After the rinse, I can smell mostly peat, but also bean sprouts, camphor. It is noticably aged and a bit spicy.

Mouthfeel is oily and a bit bubbly, quite a bit better than in the entry level aged raw pu-erh one can get. The taste is particularly warm, but also sweet, mineral, herbaceous, and bitter. Sometimes I get even spicy, sour and woody hints in the profile. There are flavours of dry grass, malt, mushrooms, beetroot, and fireplace.

The aftertaste is clearly sweeter. There are notes of honey, yeast, and nuts that come to the foreground.

Flavors: Astringent, Beetroot, Bitter, Camphor, Dry Grass, Fireplace, Floral, Hay, Herbaceous, Honey, Malt, Mineral, Mushrooms, Peat, Spicy, Sweet, Woody, Yeast

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
