2004 Nanijan Phoenix

For just over $4 I couldn't resist getting this raw pu-er tuo cha. The smoky scent is strong even before the water hits the leaves. The taste is much the same as the smell: pleasant and strongly smoky. As the tea cooled off it became bitter. I was enjoying this tea enough to brew it about 6 times. Now my teeth are chattering and I can't feel my eyes.
