I still really like the packing of these samples. I like the idea of reusing them to wrap random chunks of puerh I have in jars.I let this one settle for some time; because, I haven’t had the chance to get to it. The leaf is moderately compressed and dark green with scents of fresh greens, roast, and tobacco. I warmed up my teapot and placed a chunk inside. The scent expanded into some bitters, smoke, deep forest, heavy herbaceous tones, and roasted greens. I would describe the aroma as rough. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The taste differed from the aromas, for the initial flavor was light and an easy sipper. I took in some soft grass tones and slight smoke in the aftertaste. The flavors were not too complex, but I hinted at some huigan in the back of the tongue. The tea was an easy drinker, and the qi was very faint. Although, the brew continued for quite some time. I was able to pull a lot of steeps out of my teapot. I’d describe this tea as “whimsical” and something easy to sip on.
