I have Two samples of Yuan Nian company puer tea's both raw however this one is a year older.
The leaves of smell of an earthy forest, however, very sweet almost floral.
The leaves brewing smell sweet and somewhat smokey. I am using a cup brewing vessel that I would rather not use but, I do not have any teaware that is good for rare puer tea. If you have one for sale please let me know. Thanks
The orange musty soup tastes smooth and smokey at first. A very light sweetness comes after sort of like sweet grass but not quite. I enjoyed the sweet aftertaste with the smokey front it was perfect to start my morning. I couldn't get more then one infusion because my cat decided to chew on the leaves when I went to wash a better cup.
I can't wait to try the next Yuan Nian Tea!
