Addendum to my last tasting note:
I’ve tried many teas samples in between these two postings and I decided to purchase the entire cake based on the quality, uniqueness, and price. It’s a neat exercise to go back to earlier tasting notes while sipping on that same tea to compare current to previous flavor descriptions (and writing ability). The description still holds true.
Jim from the Puerh Shop claims it’s “truly grown wild”, and I think I can believe. It has that extra-long pleasant finish that fills the mouth and unique sharp edge (not astringent, but herbal and sweet at the same time) I’ve picked up in “wild” teas from other vendors. It’s also true that Jim doesn’t seem make that claim very often. Puerh Shop has gotten some bad press in the Western online puerh universe, but I won’t go into those issues.
