Let me start this review with a frustratingly hard-to-open wrapper. I don’t know who thought that the sticker might be a good idea on puerh cakes but it ruins the whole wrapping paper.

After the initial steeps, the leaves are emitting crisp and tangy aromas which shortly transform into a more mature and deep smell: sweet plum, cinnamon maybe. The notes are understandably complex and a bit dark.

The soup is orange colored and it gets deeper and deeper in its hue. The taste has camphor-like, plum and grape(fruit) notes and in its texture strongly astringent. Even more so than what I’ve experienced recently in a 2023 puerh cake.

Flavors: Astringent, Camphor, Grapefruit, Grapes, Plum
