The Leaf: Very dark leaves compressed together with fairly light brown leaves spotted throughout. The scent is typical of a pu-erh, earthy, soil, and slightly woody. However, I detect a slight musty or moldy tone; it’s very faint, but still there.
The Brew: The liquor is a golden brown. The aroma is faint but has tones of wood and walnut. The taste is also very earthy, woody, but quite nutty as well. I get a very distinct walnut essence from this tea. The mouthfeel is nice and light with very little aftertaste, mostly nutty as well, and no dryness really.
The Spent Leaf: The spent leaf was the most interesting of this tea. Just after brewing the leaves present a very strong undeniable scent of walnuts. Walnut was the overtone, while there were undertones of wood, and earth.
I drink all of my teas cold. *my comments are from the first brewing
