Eternal Spring

Great pu-erh from purple colored wild tea tree leaves

5 stars 5.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

I am writing this review with my last piece of cake left since the purchase of this tea one year ago. I must say that the taste was changing enormously over the time – it was better and better :-). In the beginning the taste and smell was pleasantly smoky. After about half year start to dominate a strong fruity aroma with a subtle smoky flavor.
The infusion is light green, clear. The taste is full, balanced, with a delicate flavor and a pleasant, slightly smoky, finish. No bitterness. Hui gan is fast. Very stimulative tea, evokes pleasant atmosphere.
Now I really regret that the cake is only 100 grams and I can no longer follow the development of this great tea. Purchased for $ 5.50 in 2012. Unfortunately it is not available for purchase anymore.


7g, gaiwan 170ml, water 100°C, first wash 10s. Very firmly pressed cake. First steeping was longer - about 30s - 10/20/30/40/60/90/120/180
