From Halcyon Tea

Crafted from ancient, large leaf tea trees growing wild in Yunnan province. This selection has a mellow earthy character, clear sweetness, and a slightly lighter body than our Imperial Shou. A new shop favorite.

Time: 20 sec. rinse, flash rinse, then 20+ sec. infusion (multiple infusions)

Temp: 195°–205° Amount: 2 tbs / 5 oz. water

First of all, let me preface this tasting note by saying that I’m not the biggest fan of pu-erh. I do enjoy it, but it always seems too rounded and mellow for me. For some reason, I prefer dark, astringent, and even bitter teas. This was one of the best pu-erhs I’ve tried, however.
Flavor: A sweet, rounded, well balanced cup.
Color: A beautiful amber color – very thick. After several steepings, it appears lighter and very red.
Scent: Definite earthy, musty notes. Reminds me of an old coniferous forest after a long rain.
