There is a pleasant smoky aroma to the first infusion. The mouth feel is the first thing that I notice about this tea it smoothly glides through your mouth. Leaving your mouth feeling lubricated. There is a slight woodiness starting to show in this tea. With an aftertaste filled with dried fruits. The second infusion the lubricating mouth feel resides a little along with any smokiness giving way to more dried fruit less wood hints of mushroom and aloe with a eucalyptus huigan. There is more of a feeling than a flavor that resides in my throat after drinking this infusion. I am sure that the Chinese have a word for this yet I am ignorant to it. The qi to this to is strong and comfortable making my face tingle and warming my body. The Flavors keep evolving over a number of infusions gaining sweetness and ku at the same time. This tea is keeps you interested the blend of different grades of leaf and different mountains makes this cake more interesting than allot of single mountain cakes. With the contrasting tastes of trees from individual mountains weaving in and out of your cup, making for a tea session that forces you to pay attention. The tea does loose its initial shine some where around the ninth or tenth infusion and tends to become a little astringent. Yet still stays more interesting than the initial infusions of most generic pu-erh.
