I’m confused whether this is a shu or sheng puerh. Sampletea states it is green, and it does not have the typical shu character, more like a a bit wetter stored or simply old sheng. I was really surprised this tea still has a good amount of bitterness despite the age. A complex aroma of dried plums, sweet earthy forest floor, and warm weathered wood. Taste is sweet and charcoaly with powdery and a little oily mouthfeel.

4 g – the remainder of my sample.
A quick check of my previous review tells me this is good. Having done two rinses, I then separate the leaves using a fork; this opens up the aroma, which has an aged, musty building scent. After all, this is from the 90’s. I have now left it to open up and I will return to it later this evening. I want to know if this will improve on the score I gave it last time – 82.

5s – Doesn’t look like ripe pu-erh…
30+s – No sure what happened. I will abandon this.

4 g 3 OZ / 100 ML
