This is a tea I would like to drink from morning to night. Well recommended for old and new drinkers.
KTM recommended me this cake when I was searching for something suitable. For the price, it is phenomenal. The cake itself has lots of beautiful gold buds, and comes apart easily. However- I do get some amount of dust/small tea particles when breaking this apart. It could be the cake or just how I am working pieces off, not sure. Lid smell is rich, heavy buttermilk with some hints of caramel and a dark chocolate tang in the background. Taste is not overly complex or dynamic in the mouth, but very delicious nonetheless. That caramel and dark chocolate persist, riding on a sort of spicy, damp wood taste. As brews go on, I find that it becomes slightly more "fresh" and almost herbal. Leaving the palate feeling clean, but this doesn't linger for long. It is most certainly a great daily drinking puerh, and at the price point it's could easily be drunk all day. I can't be thankful enough for being pointed toward this cake!
Very nice texture and thickness on this one. A little punchy caffeine-wise. Would definitely recommend breaking this one up and letting it rest before drinking. Lacks complexity, but for the price? Nuts.
Amazing tea, I really love this tea. One of the best teas, I’ve ever had in my life. Usually, I’m not a big fan of ripe pu-erh. But this is too good. It reminds me of raw pu-erh. I guess that’s why I like so much. Gotta try a sample if you have your doubts but, I’m sure you’ll end up getting a tong. If you do try it.
