From The Essence of Tea

We pressed two cakes from this village in Wuliang mountains this Spring. One was included in our Puerh Tea Club as a 200g cake of wild tea. This one is also from old trees, but trees that have been cultivated.
The environment in this area is very good, the altitude is around 1900m and the forest rich and largely untouched.
The tea itself is vibrant and pure. Thick and full in the mouth with a slight astringency and an aftertaste that lasts on and on. I’m very happy with this tea. The fact that this village is little known has kept the prices reasonable and the trees not overpicked and agrochemical free. I hope we can continue to source tea from this village in the coming years.

Lovely aroma from the rinse, coats the mouth from the first sips with a sort of soapy moutheel (I know that doesn’t sound appealing, but it’s very nice!). A very light flavor with just an undertone of bitterness, and a nice perfumey, floral top. Some definitely heart-pounding energy to this one.

This is an awesome puer, especially for the price. The notes are clean and bright, tasting of mineral amber and rocks, rock sugar, stone fruit, and floral. The body is heavy and thick. Wuliang H has plenty of energy too. I got 13 good infusions.

Nice review! I know what you mean by a tea being too powerful for as a workplace tea, but not complex enough for an amazing session. That being said, I have a Mangfei and Mengku tea that were at that stage even after they had a year to settle, but are now nuanced enough, and just as powerful as ever, for a good session. Perhaps this tea, too, will require another year to really come into its own.
