You can see that the leaves are very thick. You can also clearly see how they are growing out of each other. This is a characteristic of old, wild puerh trees that I had explained here before. This proved that this puerh is made of leaves from an old puerh tree.
The taste was very sweet and displayed pure fruitiness. No matter how long we brewed it, the taste and smell were excellent. Instead of analyzing the tea for strength and weakness, we were just enjoying it.
So, was it the quality of the tea, the purity of the spring water, the beauty of the Wenshan mountains, the design of our tea tools, the presence of a buddhist temple or my dear friend Ido? All contributed to a perfect afternoon, one of tea, friendship and harmony. Toda rabba!
Note: You may have a look at Ido's blog, Divine Teas and Olive Oil for his account of that afternoon!
