I enjoyed this one quite a lot. It is suggestive of deep green stewed vegetables, or dank moss, somewhat like a Japanese green tea but with a thicker body and strong bitterness. Indeed, it is not a ‘sweet tea’, but it has a smoothness, complexity and depth that is not easily matched by other puerhs. It has conventional Menghai character in its tobacco and malt flavors, but is not overtly fruity like the Milk, Cream and Alcohol is. Instead, it tends much more towards dark green flavors noted above. I’d recommend at least sampling this guy.
Flavors: Asparagus, Tobacco, Wet Moss
