I bought the tiniest sample of this tea and it took me 3 years to sip it down! My tea management skills leave much to be desired! I’m really enjoying this cup and it’s surprising me. I figured that after years of sitting around in a wax paper bag I’d be tossing the cup after one sip. Instead the flavors have stood the test of time quite well! The smoke is the most prominent flavor, but the puerh seems to be adding depth. It’s very dark and earthy. The cedar and cypress add complexity and the feel of sipping on a forest. I’d love to have this tea again sometime, but I don’t know that I’m taken enough by it to buy it again.
