Compared to my other shu pu-erh from adagio this one is a lot more interesting. Sweeter and lighter in the first steep (after rinse) but still rich and complex, a slight brown sugar quality. This pu-erh also does not smell like rot but instead has a sweeter mustier smell. Further steepings are more of the same and the leaves do not evolve too much. Last steep was ten minutes and there was no bitterness at all. Not a bad pu-erh but I’m still not a huge fan of shu pu-erh
