Picked up a sample of this one a while back when I was seeking out puerh pressed with aged maocha. Unfortunately, this one wasn’t for me. Leaves had a smoky, slightly pungent aroma. The taste followed closely, with smoky notes dominating. There was a sweetness and pleasant finish to the brew, but between the smokiness and the smaller material, this one was a bit rough.

Could be quite good once that smokiness starts to fade, though will likely retain a punchiness throughout its life due to the small material. Reminds me of a Dayi 0622 that I have. It certainly did seem a bit more aged than I would expect from 2012 material.

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
