Finishing my 10g sample.
The dry leaves smell earthy and slightly fruity. After a quick rinse the aroma gets really strong and vibrant. Dried fruits are the main element. Apricot, raisin, a bit of wood, tobacco. The aroma is one of the most high-pitched and intense I’ve got from a raw puer.
Liquor: light camphor, wood, TCM, dried fruits. tobacco, medium body. Pungency. Slight bitterness. Almost exotic fruits.
Thicker body. bittersweet, juicy. Pungent.
Vanilla. More bite. There’s something in common with Post Truth. Warming feeling and brain massage.
Proceeding towards clarity. Bittersweet, thick. Strong body feeling. Not so intense Huigan.
5 and 6
Pungency, perfume, wild herbs. relaxing. slightly more drying.
I think this could be a good tea as an introduction to aged puer. Easy to like.
