1998 Imperial Grade Gold Melon Raw Puerh - Brown Urluru

 

This tea brick is made of imperial grade tea leaves from wild arbor in 1998 and pressed into a dome shape. The domes were well stored , aged naturally

 

Each comes in a solid 500g.  It gives joy as if breaking open a real melon. After 23 years of aging , time has transformed its fruitiness into a solid , mature mineral note and autumn leaf flavor. The first steep is like many other very old puerh, suggesting 2 quick rinses. The second steep comes in a very delightful mineral note with a rich camphor taste.   Bittersweet is obvious and delightful, subtle and coming out slowly. A variation of the delightful camphor note from the ancient arbor along steeps together with the woody, light autumn leaf flavor and sweetness.
