- Truly refined aged puerh
- Clean, smooth, sweet taste with refreshing aftertaste
- Deep, still, peaceful Qi
- Complex ginseng-based aroma
The shou for people that don’t like shou puerh: it’s thick and sweet like you’d expect from a shou, but it’s also so clean, has strong and deep huigan that leaves you feeling very refreshed. The experience is rounded up by very complex aromas, pleasant salivation and really peaceful feeling.
Both Qi and taste wise it feels very old and calming, yet with a good depth and interest. It’s currently the only shou we ever offered, and for good reason: it’s not flat and one-dimensional but has a lot of complexity going on, comparable to a sheng cake of the same period. Over it’s long aging period, it developed a strong fragrance, mostly reminiscent of ginseng but with other layers as well.
This is one of the best examples of clean-stored 1980s shou puerh, and as a bonus the price is very modest for genuine old puerh of this quality and storage. This kind of bricks are a bit hard to date precisely but it was given as 80s by our source Mr Li and indeed the drinking experience is anywhere from the late 1970s to late 80s/early 90s, most likely sometimes in the 1980s.
