aroma- very damp and forest like. distinctly “forest like” in aroma, light notes of beef jerky or smoked meat.

taste- first infusions- woodsy, dark brown/red liqeur. tastes of smokey wood, with a slight sweet element inside the taste. light mouth feel “clean tasting”

second infusion- dark dark brown almost black liquid. taste is still smokey but more of a leathery taste comes through.. reminding me almost of a scotch like taste.

as i drink this tea i am envisioning myself within an old leacture hall or colonial pub. very rustic and Wise tasting.

third infusion- before taking a sip already noticing a more lingering mouth feel of this tea after the second infusion aroma is smoothing out, still catching some brief spicy meat like notes, but over all smoothing out into a more balanced roastyness.
taste smooths out and mellows into a more lingering and slow taste that develops over several seconds.

over all this is a great pu erh for the ripe variety…

it wouldn’t stand up against a good raw pu erh in my opinion.
but still a good tea in its own right!
