Type: Medium-aged raw puer
At just under 20 years of dry storage, this cake won't get bitter even if you brew it for a long time. It's pleasurably smooth with a nice mouthfeel and conspicuous camphor taste (with no "woody-ness", smokiness or wet notes). Nothing overpowers you, it's just a good tea with no off tastes.
I'm a fan of these Medium-aged raw cakes because you get a lot of value for a reasonable investment. This is a good one to keep for ten years in your tea chest and you'll have a fully-aged Chinese-Medicine-cabinet-worthy cake in your collection.
It's called "Long Ma Rui Ming A1-2" from Chang Tai Tea Manufacturing based in Jinghong, Yunnan. The label states it has lots of quality control awards and is supposedly organic. I'm making no claims myself but I can say it's very clean.
Note: there will be some smallish holes in the wrappers due to age.
