I received this as a freebie sample from Pu-erh shop. I always like getting samples especially free. I’ve been drinking pu for over year now and I can say I’ve never had a tea that makes my tongue numb… like novacaine. Truly weird. I’ve had multiple shu from menghai, and CNNP and my favorite Xiaguan and I’ve never experienced something like this. I will say that 2009 is newest shu I’ve tried so maybe that is what it is attributed to. Not a fan of this tea, and since the sample is gone thats a good thing. I did continue to infuse the tea until it was little more than colored water so I think I gave it ample chance but I’m not impressed. If this is a connoisseur tea then I’m really missing something.

I’ve been drinking tea for about 15 years now. I started out with a couple of orders from Harney and Son and some local vendors and living in Utah good local tea vendors are very hard to come by… makes me think we might need another one, maybe mine?
