Another tea from the puerh samples I received. This tea smelled and tasted like a raw that has matured. There was a small amount of camphor smell in the wet leaves, but the taste had none and there was no bitterness that I could detect. This tea has an earthy sweetness not unlike the taste one would get from a shou puerh in later steepings, but not as concentrated. My understanding is that this was dry stored and is composed of small, tippy high quality material. It is a very balanced tea and easily approachable. This tea in one word is SMOOTH. I could just be tired, but I drank this in the evening and was concerned it might keep me up, but instead it relaxed me. This is one that could easily be a daily drinker. Someone new to puerh would likely enjoy this. To borrow a TeaDB phrase, I think it would pass the mom test.
