Decent puerh, didn’t last as long as I might have expected, 8 steeps was about the max I could see taking this today. Initial blast of musty basement, old leather books, camphor, dark bread, pipe tobacco gives way over several steepings to a sweet maple sugar or rock candy with old rotten apple aromas and a cinnamon flavor and cooling effect on the tongue. Dark red color, relatively twiggy in composition, very low astringency, the aftertaste does not linger very long.
Solid choice, might leaf a little heavier.
