This tea was meh. I was expecting a little more from it and slightly disappointed. There wasn't much flavor and not much of a scent either, and I'm all about aroma with tea, even if it is "damp basement" smelling pu-erh, which is what I was told to expect. I work with old books and things, so I kind of like that sme...Read Full Review

5 minute steep for first cup, Smells smoky and good! Amanda's rating of the smell is pretty descriptive of it too! Great strength to this tea...steeped just right...a touch of bitterness off the bat, then I taste the sweetness on the end...the opposite of what others tasted! Not sure about the value as it was a gift......Read Full Review

The aroma of this tea reminds me of nature, it is like being on the edge of a pine forest and a field right after a summer rain storm. There are notes of wet hay and wet wood, along with fresh pine and camphor, also a little hint of flowers and minerals, much like rain water. It is very sweet and refreshing.Read Full Review

Wow. Exceptional, unique. The dry leaf of this smells completely unlike any other tea I've tried...and so does the cup when brewed. The leaf smells like honey and flowers, but with a smoky quality. Definitely the smoothest raw Pu-erh I've ever had that was effectively un-aged (being less than a year old when I trie...Read Full Review

This is among my favorite Pu-erhs that I've ever sampled.Read Full Review
This cake has a very fine leaf, tightly packed, and is tricky to break apart. I'm glad TeaVivre had already broken it off for me for the sample.
The dry leaf has a pleasant aroma, like caramel with a hint of worcestershire sauce, and still some remnants o...

This is just about my favorite age range of Pu-erh: aged but still relatively young.Read Full Review
The compressed leaf is not very aromatic, and is devilishly hard to break apart. Thankfully TeaVivre already broke off this sample for me, but just judging by the texture of the compressed leaf, this one looks like it would be anno...

This tea is the youngest raw Pu-erh that I've consumed to date. Like I'd expect, it is potent, but it's smoother and more drinkable than even some Pu-erh I've tried that has been aged by a few more years.Read Full Review
The dry leaf smells strongly vegetal, with tones of honey and camphor.
Brews a strong-flavored cup with a li...

The aroma of the leaves is a blend of loam, wet pine wood, and leather. It reminds me of a forest floor and is quite enjoyable. Once the tea has been steeped and rinsed the aroma is sweeter with caramel notes, loam, and wood. The liquid is sweet, earthy and loamy. Read Full Review

The aroma of this tea is great, it smells like a forest in late summer, pine wood, loam and vegetation. It blends life and decay, humidity and wood. The brewed tea has more of a spinach and old hay aroma with a bit of barnyard.Read Full Review
The mouthfeel is really fascinating, thick and causes me to salivate a lot. The taste is ...

I've had shu (ripened) Pu-erh of this age that I thought was exquisite, like the 2005 Jing Mai Autumnal I got from Tao of Tea, so I know it exists, but this cake didn't do it for me. I had a generous amount of samples, enough to experiment a bit with brewing, but I still didn't like it. The dry leaf has an aroma typi...Read Full Review

I found this tea to be a very enjoyable Pu-erh, typical for its age and unusual only in the degree to which it produced a tingling and numbing sensation on the palate.Read Full Review
I received a sample which was a mostly-whole piece broken off a Pu-erh cake. The leaves were largely intact and it was very easy to break apart with...

I don't have a lot of experience with higher-end Pu Erh tea, so I don't have much to compare this to. In the past I've drank (and rather liked) the cheap stuff you find in Chinatown, the kind that smells fishy and tastes of dirt.Read Full Review
This tea was an altogether different experience for me. I didn't have much of it, so I ...

This tea is interesting. It has a strong aroma of molasses, which is a little weird. The flavor is pretty good. It's strong and deep. I added cream and sugar. It's kind of hard to brew with my small infuser because the balls expand so much. Read Full Review

In spite of having tried quite a few Yunnan teas by now, this was something completely different for me! Very interesting, although a little bit difficult to brew to satisfaction. The dry leaf, rolled into dense spheres, has only a mild aroma, more suggestive of Keemun than other Yunnan teas.Read Full Review
