Deep dark liquor when brewed and very thick early infusions are as dark as soy sauce if not darker (if its possible) I brew this one in a 200ml yixing red clay pot which dramatically adds to the thickness. Gorgeous tea and one of my favourites I’m sad that they sold out before I could buy another cake. Definitely worth the price.

Where to start very thick mouthfeel and texture. Coats the mouth as you drink adding to the experience. Juicy on the sides of the tongue and at the back of the mouth. Warming tea and by the time you have finished brewing it leaves you with a gentle heat and slight perspiration. Taste with it has a definite sweetness, fudge with a touch of chocolate and brown sugar. Best way to describe it is a dark fudge brownie with brown sugar. It has a minerality which increases through the infusions.

Found true tea a couple of years ago and my interest hasn’t dropped since.

The first tea to hook me was a gushu puerh from mei leaf which had an amazing complexity which blew my mind. I now have an ever growing tea selection which shows no signs of slowing.

Puerh is definitely one of my favourites whether raw or ripe. If anyone knows any good ones with a complex flavour feel free to chat. I also love dancongs and yancha as they have an amazing flavour and pack a punch. Basically I like tea…
