Reviews & Ratings
Nice puer! Even though itís very young it tastes good. A bit strong and bitter, but with a broad and deep taste, and a lovely sweetness. I think this cake will become really great in a few years.
Picked up the Tong of this entire series (includes all of the 9081 cakes shown, which is the same tea in 7 different wrappers). Good quality bing cha with a mix of large leaves, buds and stems. Very aromatic and still quite (expectedly) smoky. Brews up with a bitter edge unless youíre extremely careful on steeping for a short period, but with a lingering sweetness on the finish. The smokiness and bitterness should go away in a few years; this oneís worth aging and should turn into a fine aged sheng in a few years!
Fresh Smell fills a whole room when I open package. Very nicely strength feeling come to my mind.
A few years late, this will be one of my pleasure surly.
