Some solid tea here. It has that same quality and price that the Yiwu had.
I’m really looking into doing an order with Teamania now… just a few more to try and I’m going to just do it.
This is very vegetable like, but unlike the Yiwu it can be over brewed. I believe this is very close to the type of teas that cost around $70 to $80 a cake which makes me happy to say that it is less thankfully. This is pressed a little looser than some cakes so it will probably fair well in a pumidor as more cake will be exposed to the conditions in there. Unless the other cakes have qualities I like more, I plan to pick one of these up at that low cost and store it away for awhile as this seems to be something I can get to age within a decent amount of time.
