Wowza, this is dark full thick and strong. This is like the puerh equivalent of a super dark chocolate. The liquor is almost black its so dark, and totally opaque. It coats your mouth and throat in its warm thick embrace. Deep dark earthiness, with a hint of cocoa that’s made more evident through sweetening. There’s also a leathery note as well. Together it all just becomes incredibly decadent and a tea that you sip, not gulp. Second steep is just as deep dark and delicious as the first. This steep is a little less heavy. If possible, even smoother than the first steep. Third steep is like the first two. This tea is so rich, three cups is enough for now. I’ll save the leaves and do some more steeps later.
