For a Guangdong-stored aged puer tea, this is remarkably clean tasting.
After a mild initial bitterness, there are notes of wildflowers, cream, peat moss and apricot, along with a long-lasting sweetness on the palette.
It has some ethereal quality to it, showing a moderate camphor note.
Flavor notes: Wildflowers, cream, sweet, camphor, peat moss, apricot, and tobacco.
