Brewed gong-fu near boiling. Rinse gives smell of earth, slightly like old book/must, with an edge of what some might call “fishy”, but it smells right- not like a cheap pu’er fish/shrimp smell, but just a fermentation smell, like korean food or something good. Anyways, I’m pretty new to ripe pu’ers and this is my favorite so far. Has the flavors of other teas I’ve had but just better. Also, I feel like I can taste the characteristics of the pre-fermented tea in way- it has nice fruity undertones like a good black tea.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Earth, Musty, Wet Earth
