From Yunnan Sourcing

This “Emperor’s Golden Pu-erh” 茶皇 is an incredibly laborious tea to produce. A wet pile batch made from Ban Pen Village spring harvested tea leaves (Bu Lang Mountains, Menghai) was graded and then the golden pu-erh was hand-separated from the various grades. Then the tea was aged for one year in Menghai, giving it an incredibly smooth and sweet taste without much wet pile taste. Further aging will bring this tea into a state of smooth perfection!

Smooth, creamy, sweet, velvety and thick ripe tea. Totally unique and worth of the title “Emperor”!

This was pretty decent, but not amazing. A nice, smooth shou, with no taste of fish (though it has a fishy scent); the soup is very dark, and no flavours stand out very distinctly. It was actually better brewed grandpa-style than gongfu; the latter concentrated the flavours a tad too much, and brought out a strangely bitter note I rarely find in shou.
