6g in Gaiwan. My first cake :) (Yes I bought it because it was one of the cheapest I could find).
Dry leaf: It is dark and there are twigs in the mix, which suggests low quality material.
This shu pu-erh has a unique flavour, which I would describe as being similar to bovril and stewed tea. It is relatively smooth, but not creamy smooth. The brew does not have the depth and is not as dark as some Menghai’s I have tried, but it is very drinkable and I have found myself re-loading the Gaiwan tonight. Some of the leaves are black and some are dark grey, which to me suggests different levels of fermentation. It has zero fishiness in it, which I am very surprised at.
According to the description, this uses leaves harvested in 2001.
At $14.99 (£9.70) for a full 357g cake, it’s a bit of bargain in my humble opinion.
