Now that this tea has had a chance to start to rest, I’ve been dying to crack into the cake and steep it up! The first thing I noticed was how unbelievably soft and smooth the texture if the liquor was – one of the mostly silky and velvety pu’erhs that I’ve tasted in quite some time. Several times while sipping the phrase “earth butter” popped into my head; it feels so fitting for this pleasantly earthy and highly creamy shou that has a real “melt in your mouth” quality. I fully understand W2T’s description of this tea as the ripe pu’erh version of steamed milk – it’s almost painfully spot on. What a beautiful way to start off the weekend!
