A nice yet average pu-erh! I got this tea from my recent BLT order, and while there wasn’t much to rave about this tea, it isn’t bad by any means either. Beautiful pickings and liquor with a potent wet leaf aroma, average texture, finish and aftertaste. The big stand out for this tea is its cha-qi, with it being persistently present even from steep 1. This tea lacked in character and complexity, flavour lacked in potency and dimensionality, and the tea didn’t hold up for that many infusions. Overall, decent decent, but there’s better for this price.
