This tea carries the Pu Erh trademark smoky, earthy, woodsy complexity with heartwarming subtlety.

Each time you return for another brew, the tea's gentle reminder about just how good it really is, transports you somewhere you really like being. That place, ineffable though it is, is in fact just the most positive of distractions, as you understand yet again, that you are participating in something special.

This is exactly what I signed up for, this prince among Pu Erh teas.

Classic taste of Pu-erh - nice earthy flavour with a bit of smokiness and barely noticeable sweetness.

To me, this is the typical pu’erh… with a touch of smokiness. Aroma of the dry leaves in a warm glazed clay gaiwan: smoky, earthy, sweet. After the first infusion, the leaves take a mossy aroma, reminiscent of old warm wood (or the interior of a wooden cottage on a warm summer day!). Taste like, the first infusions are smoky, woody, slightly mineral, and smooth. The 5th infusion is all that plus a touch of sweetness, with stronger minerality as well. The 5th infusion seems smoother, and I detect some spiciness. The 8th infusion takes a leathery taste I quite enjoy. This tea took me on a journey and, for that reason, it will be remembered.

Not being a big Pu-Erh fan I must say I am pleased with this one. Nice earthy flavour, a bit cigarettes-like but not in the nasty way. The second brewing is equally strong in flavour so makes the value for money better. I did not try to brew it for 3 times but judged by the flavour of the 2nd brewing, the 3rd one would be still good. Probably this will not be my regular tea (since I'm not a Pu-Erh person) but if you'd like to try a Pu-Erh I think this one would be a good choice as it's well balanced.

Awesome tea!! Perfect earthy flavor....rolls off the tongue nicely. A woodsy flavor that can't be beat. Possibly the best Pu Erh I've tasted!! Definitely worth a try!!
