Uncomfortable storage and lovely dried tobacco aroma, mostly in wet leaf. Has distinct minty wet-ish storage flavor. It has one of the lovelier dry pipe tobacco notes I’ve had in puer, but it doesn’t come with much else. It’s dry and astringent throughout, lacking body or interesting mouthfeel characteristics. Not getting a lot of body feels out of it. Dominated a little too heavily by the storage, as though there wasn’t something to hold up against it, and somehow the storage didn’t cut the astringency down.

Flavors: Clay, Tobacco

Pu’erh TTB 2015 Tea #13

I thought this was going to be great, a 2003 Mengku raw!
Unfortunately this was too strong of a taste for me to enjoy so after awhile I gave up on it and switched to the next YS which was a variation I generally don’t like but when compared to this I found it enjoyable :p

I like this one a lot.

Thanks for this wonderful sample, boychik!

This is one of very few aged raw puerhs I’ve had a chance to try. The liquor is a beautiful amber color. The flavor is smooth, with a hint of smoke. The grilled vegetable kind of smoke that I like! There are vegetal notes and fruity notes, like dried apricot, and it also reminds me of wine somehow. It is more complex than that, and I’m sorry I can’t do this tea justice by identifying all the notes, but I noticed multiple flavors dancing around in my mouth. Yum!

It just kept going, so I decided to keep the leaf for a second session. On the second day, it was super nice, fruity, and sweet!

This tea also packs quite the punch of energy, so I definitely recommend a good snack before and during your session to calm the stomach.

Overall, this is a great value for the price…I’m going to have to consider picking up a cake of this one!

You can definitely taste a slightly more wetter storage to this tea, however it is good. Brews a golden liquor and has no strong amount astringency or bitterness. Overall, a nice cup to grab during the colder months, as it does help warm the body.
