This came in the Yunnan Sourcing Tea Club (Puer Only) for Jan 2016.
Came on very strong. I was buzzing around the room within 4 steepings. Early infusions full of bitter astringency, in a good way. A bit dry in the mouth, but thick and nice as well. Thick in the throat too. Hay, a hint of sour lemon (?) in the beginning. Was steeping at 20 seconds and brought this down to around 10. Probably should have done this sooner. Sweetness really came out somewhere after 7 or so. I thought I tasted honey dew melon! Great stuff!

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Earth, Hay, Honeydew, Lemon
