This is my very first real very young pu’erh I’ve had. I’ve had some aged raw and ripe pu’erh before, but those didn’t appeal to me that much. So, I thought I would get some raw pu’erh and since I needed some more tea I could use for daily drinking, I got an entire cake. The cake is quite loose and can therefore be broken apart without too much work. The smell is very floral, sweet anf fruity and so is the tea’s taste. I managed to get it up to 15 steeps without the flavour changing to a very bad one. The only thing that was added from steep to steep was the astringency. The tea, after a couple of steeps, started to dry my mouth out a bit, but I believe this is to be expected from young pu’erh. The astringency isn’t too bad though.
