An inexpensive ripe puer classic from Xiaguan. I bought this tea long time ago but completely forgot that I had it. After rediscovering it, I have had couple of sessions with it and found it pretty nice ripe puer. First steepings were still pretty light, but after the start the tea expressed very nice smooth ripe puer aromas, which is exactly what you could expect from good ripe puer. Under the earthy and woody taste the tea had nice underlying sweetness with maybe hints of vanilla and cherry. The soup was nice and smooth and sometimes the mouthfeel was even somewhat buttery.
In the end this tuo was very enjoyable for its price. Really good contender for a daily drinker tea and I think I’ll buy more of this in the future, but maybe production from different year for comparative reasons.
