Received this as part of Liquid Proust’s intro to puerh thing. Seems to be a shou. It has a slightly sweet and smoky aroma. First steep has roasty notes and a lasting warming sensation. Even as the tea cools, this warming sensation builds in my chest. Slight astringency. Vegetal aftertaste that reminds me of green tea.

Sweet aroma in the second infusion with more astringency.

Flavor is smoothing out, but weakening by the third infusion. While taking a break from it I feel nicely relaxed, with that warmth still lingering in my chest and a slight, pleasant buzz settling over my body.

Resteeping again after a few hours, the taste is mellow and earthy.

Flavors: Roasted, Vegetal, Wet Earth

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
