This is a nicely aged loose leaf puerh. As with most aged loose leaf puerhs, there is some blending that has happened over the years. It was sold to me as being from 1992, but after tasting it several times, I'd suggest that many of the leaves are from a little later (~mid-90's).
Nonetheless, this is an excellent loose leaf aged puerh, with an exceedingly clean taste, smooth character and long sweet aftertaste. The leaves are large, thick and strong, with their flavour concentrated towards the back of the mouth and throat, suggesting their origins from old trees.
This is a great choice for those wanting an nicely aged puerh of a high quality that is inexpensive enough for everyday drinking.
