Commercial Description

...a uniquely bold flavor profile with a body as deep as its history. This shu pu-erh is notable for its notes of earthy sweetness, hints of cocoa, and a woodsy, aromatic finish. The very best in everyday organic pu-erh.

This is my first unflavored puerh, so I don't have anything to compare it to. Mine was aged for 3 years so it might be slightly different from the normal version, but probably not that much. I had to air it out for a week to get rid of the smell of fish. Once that went away, the aroma of the dry leaves became earthy in a sort of wet way, like the ground near a river, with a similar aroma in the brewed cup. The taste is hard to describe. What stands out to me more than the flavor is the mouthfeel, which is thick and soft, if that makes sense. It's also quite mellow in its total lack of bitterness and astringency, regardless of how strongly it's brewed. The only identifiable flavor I ever get from this is an occasional strong, lingering chocolaty note in the finish, which is hard to bring out but is very enjoyable when I can get it.
