Side by side pu’er test tasting !
2007 ripe bamboo fragrance from RoyalTeaBay vs Random old ripe cake from grocery store

The 2007 RTB stuff is pretty massive, but when you look at it… it’s like it was broken up and then pressed which is a little bit of a let down. The liquid it produces is not very appealing as it has a very basic taste.

However, basic… can be the best! This random cake I purchased is a HUGE surprise because I did not expect it to have a decent quality. Personally, I would have paid $25+ for a tea cake that brews a liquid such as this; I paid $5 though!
The 2007 got trashed at steep 8 because I was not feeling it. This other tea though… liquid fermented brown sugar at steep 12 and still going beautifully. :) :) :) :) :)
