Another loot from Hong Kong and one I wish I picked up more of. This tea is traditionally stored Yiwu Spring Buds.

I am not sure how the vendor did it, but I think this cake taste very clean and not “wet” at all. I would not guess this tea is from Hong Kong.
I remember this cake taste more consistent throughout the session, while the one I have seems a bit rougher initially and taste more humid. They don’t taste exactly the same, but I thought in general they share similar profile. Maybe In a few years it will taste even more similar to yours.
It is kind of a dark medicinal woody taste to me. Very comforting to drink during cold dark day. I would also like to see if I can get more, if the price is right.
James, as a puerh lover and not drinking much young sheng, what do reach for tea wise in the warmer months?
