Its a small sample given in my last chawanshop order. Smells in the packet very old and dusty.
Taste is quite mellow really, tastes aged – not fruity but just old and stuff. reminiscent of a mellow shou puerh, but with a thinner-transparent soup. A slight oil & salt on the tip of my tongue but generally its unsalty/mellow.
Aroma is mellow leaf-pile. Apparently the mellow is a classic three-cranes style.
Not the best i’ve tasted, lacking depth & richness and the flavour is a bit dusty & old & twiggy, but if you like that/shou lover that wants to try everything, you might like it more than me. Its so cheap!
