From teasenz

Direct from Yunnan this high grade loose pu erh tea. Easy and perfect for serving in restaurant or use it as a base loose leaf pu erh tea to create your signature blend.

An alluring infusion with an almost coffee-like flavor, with rich consistency and good body that provide the base for a woody aroma and chocolaty overtones. A taste well worth acquiring.

Harvest year: 2013
Tea season: Spring

I’ve had this in dry storage for 3 years and it is supposedly a 2013, so now an 8 yr old ripe (wet pile process) tea. Rinsed 2.5 g in hot tap water for 10 sec, then steeped in 8 oz boiling water, in a steel straining basket. Odor of fresh fish, compost and forest floor at first put me off, but my persistence was rewarded with a smooth sweet taste. As I sipped down the second steeping of this portion, the fishy aroma had mostly dissipated, and halfway through I got a distinct flavor of chestnut, much to my surprise! My third and final steeping continued to be smooth and presented leather and toasted hardwood (not smokey).
