Great value with lovely tobacco notesReview by Rachel
This is my favourite raw puerh yet (I have tried at least 7 others from Canton). The strong tobacco, spicy, earthy, leathery, smokey notes remind me of my favourite perfume(Byredo Black Saffron) without the florally-fruity sweetness. Some raw puerhs are unpleasantly bitter to my taste, but this isn't. Brewed in a small yixing teapot (Plump Muse, also from Canton), this yields infusion after infusion of characterful tea.(Posted on 2/23/14)
big and tarryReview by OTT
This has distinct age, with the young puerh edges rounded off. Has great persistence on the palate. I especially like the fourth to tenth infusions (the first few are too smoky and tarry for me) when the tea comes into its own for me. Rewards short hot brewing, and I have pushed this to twenty infusions before it fades. I'm still making up my mind about the balance between tar/smoke and the character of the tea leaves, but I did buy a second cake to age for a few more years.(Posted on 10/22/13)
