Fengqing Golden Buds Ripened Pu-erh Cake Tea 2013

3 / 5

Another ripened puerh, this one with some lighter “golden bud” tea. Very strong aroma – I smelled it as soon as the water hit the dry leaves. Dark, but not quite as dark as last weeks. Taste is earthy, very peaty. It also lacks the sweet scent and undertone that I liked last week. Overall a fairly dark but surprisingly mild puerh, puts it in a weird “not bad but nothing special” category for me.
