Not my favorite cup of tea. The more and more raw pu er I try the more and more I'm not sure I like it. This one has a strong tobacco aroma from my gaiwan, although there is little to no aroma from the liquor. The first infusion has a light color and a light, sweet taste. There are hints of dark fruit. Perhaps plums or cherries. The second infusion brings forth a tobacco taste and slight dryness in the mouth. The taste increases and the liquor darkens ever so slightly to a muddy green. The third and fourth infusions brought forth an almost smoky green tea flavor much like a gunpowder. Anyways, we'll see what my next sheng brings...
