Sample from the most recent puerh TTB. The name is certainly accurate. Smells quite like a basement after the rinse – I double rinsed it just to be safe. Flavor was humid woodiness and dirt (in a good way, of course). I found a bit of a nutty flavor in the finish as well. Body was thick and slightly oily – I noted a small bit of relaxing qi, though definitely wasn’t a tea that was so strong on the feels.
Definitely tasty, but I don’t think I’d go for the $89/250g pricetag on it. This one is more of a simple and smooth drinker than a super special tea for me. Though it is really good.
Flavors: Dirt, Earth, Nutty, Wet Wood
