Sometimes you just got to get your funk on. This is one of those teas that I find has good tasting fermentation funk, I really enjoyed it. It is a burly one, kind of in your face. It is very strong and simple, quite dark and thick and just a little sweet. As Alan said, it is strong with fermentation flavor being so new, but I think this is going to be a very good tea after it settles down. There is no bitterness at all, and a real smoothness underneath that is undeniable. I think the strong smooth character might very well take over after a time.

Update 2 years later: this is turning out just like I had hoped. The funk is going, though not yet completely gone. It is a burly highly fermented dark chewy brew. Very thick, bittersweet, and espresso like. This is a hidden gem of a shu.

The first thing I noticed about this was the fermentation flavor, it was thick with it. It was also sweet and relatively tasty. This is definitely a good puerh but needs some aging to mellow out. I put it through eight steeps and there was fermentation flavor even in the eighth steep.

I brewed this eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 10g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec.

Out of curiosity, I’ve never had a tea from the current year! Is it drinkable or its like a over smoked tea where it mask everything?

AllanK

It’s drinkable but the fermentation flavor is powerful. Those with an aversion to fermentation flavor best avoid this one.
