From Yee On Tea

A rare stock of Pu-erh tea of broad leaves in 0 grade or above. We’ve imported this batch of hand-picked tea leaves from old trees in Meng Ku Yunnan before it is made into compressed tea. Traditionally processed and hot air-dried to maintain consistent quality and aged in our professional warehouse in Hong Kong for the last 2 decades.

The color of the tea soup is clear chestnut red with a medium camphor wood taste with a hint of roast flavor as a result of hot air drying, strong hui gan and refreshing to drink. Infused tea leaves are soft and evenly brown.

Now this is what I’m talkin about! Seems like there are three categories of flavors in puerh: tea notes, aging (fermentation) notes, and “storage” notes. My favorite of the three is certainly storage notes. I tasted it in the 1985 maocha from LP, and I taste it here. It’s the dusty, attic/basement, old library book notes that are my favorite :). They seem to only come with significant time of storage.

This one is perfectly balanced. Pretty sweet, very smooth. No bitterness or astringency. A bit of camphor, but nowhere near as much as the other two teas from YOT.
